Pulp & Paper Industry Valves

The pulp & paper industry has many difficult applications including calcium carbonate, kaolin, calcined clays, lime, white, green liquor, and black liquor where scaling and abrasive media cause other valves to fail regularly.  RF VALVES® Class VI valves shut off even when solids or pulp are present, providing reliable shut-off for key equipment such as pumps, paper machines, clarifiers, and mixers.

Our valves offer a key safety feature for the pulp & paper industry: their self-cleaning design eliminates the need for cheater bars and other tools or tactics that are often employed to open or close inferior valves that have seized or will not shut off completely.

Our valves are used at United Paper Mills, Georgia Pacific, International Paper, Kaukas, Mead Westvaco, Metsä Serla, NewPage Corp., and more.
