High-quality, custom-made AVK knife gate valves have been delivered for a sand extraction classification plant in the Netherlands.
Zandwinning Oosterweilanden is located between Almelo and Vriezenveen from where sand is extracted for various applications. With a sustainable, state-of-the-art set-up, the extracted sand is distributed to several depots on the site and then delivered to various customers in the region.
Various transport lines are used to supply and route the extracted sand. After extraction, it is processed in a grading plant classifying the sand grains by millimetre thickness, and then it is stored in one of the depots.
The supplier of the plant installation already used AVK knife gate valves as standard, which with a few updates, in addition to water and wastewater applications, also are suitable for medias such as sand and struvite.
