Single-plate gate valve
TYPE PSA-ELI SIL / ELITA

Being part of the proven KÜHME shut-off valves for the municipal gas supply, the gate valve type PSA-ELI SIL can be used in every application where safe shut-off of the gases is required in accordance with DVGW G260. The single-plate gate valve, which is actuated by a rigid- or telescoping mounting set, sets new standards for litetime and reliability.
