Weir Minerals' new WS series sleeves incorporate Linatex wear resistant technology for application in tough abrasive and corrosive environments, contributing to an expected low total cost of ownership for customers.

In addition to the new sleeves, some of the features of the patented WS series valve include a unibody design and rugged heavy-duty construction, ensuring long valve life and greater reliability, and a omplete bubble-tight bi-directional shut-off with no downstream leakage.

In addition, the WS Series valve with its fully interchangeable, one-piece design with integral load distribution rings eliminates the need for multiple pieces and fasteners to make sleeve replacement much easier. Combined with improved sleeve geometry for increased surface contact, friction reduction, and enhanced sealing during valve opening and closing cycles, the new WS Series valve sleeves contribute to an expected low total cost of ownership for customers.

In addition to the new valve sleeves, some of the features of the patented WS series valve include a unibody design and rugged heavy-duty construction, ensuring long valve life and greater reliability, complete bubble-tight bi-directional shut-off with no downstream leakage, and wear parts that are easily field replaceable. The system also features full port design to reduce pressure drop and downstream turbulence, no seat cavity for solids to accumulate and prevent full gate closure, and a universal top plate which can be field adapted to accept any offered actuator.
