Learn how FLS slab gates are constructed to find the best replacement parts.
FLS gate valves are high-quality valves that incorporate a slab gate to block fluid flow when closed. These valves should always be operated fully open or fully closed. FLS gate valves are able to operate in extreme environments because they’re constructed with components that are durable and replaceable. The FLS slab gate is one of the components that can be replaced during maintenance on the valve for optimal operation.
Replacing this critical component means finding a part that’s not only well-constructed but also compatible. Here’s how to make sure your replacement FLS slab gate meets those two criteria.
How an FLS Slab Gate is Constructed
Construction is extremely important when you’re replacing valve parts. Even OEM parts might not be what you expect out on the job site. It helps to know how an FLS gate valve should be constructed. As with other internal components, the bore diameter should be machined to spec so there is no obstructed flow path nor would it allow unnecessary erosion. Erosion could lead to premature failure of the valve.
The FLS gate is a solid slab gate made of 410 stainless steel and features tungsten carbide hard facing.
Sizes and Pressure Ratings
The FLS slab gates are available in a range of sizes. These sizes include all valves from 1-13/16” to 7-1/16” with pressure ratings up to 15,000 PSI.
