This is a dozy of a question. For control of the flow of slurries, neither a plug valve or ball valve is a good choice, especially with the high pressure drop expected. The abrasive nature of solids would suggest a pinch valve with a replaceable sleeve. For isolation, a butterfly or a knife valve is best. Both the butterfly and the pinch valves are available in designs for pressures up to about 200 psi.
Have an insight or suggestion?
