The traditional actuator’s tower design usually works well with slurry knife gate valves. But only as long as the valve is small enough. The bigger the DN, the higher will be the valve. Let us say we need a valve DN 1200. Using the tower design, it means the valve would be extremely high in open position: 5,60 meters! Extreme heights also mean a higher centre of gravity. This makes the knife gate valve more difficult to handle, less stable during assembly and harder to access for maintenance. In other words, less safe.
