Penstocks / Sluice Gate Valves


A pensotck or a sluice gate valve is described as a valve that uses a gate or wedge shape disk that slides perpendicular to the flow of the fluid into or out of the pipeline. When the gate valve is fully opened, the disk of the gate valve is completely separated from the flow. The valve is controlled by a T-key, cranked handle or electro motor.

A variety of sizes and special types are available by request.
