Abrasion-Resistant Slide Gate Features Dust-Tight Seal
Vortex Valves' Titan Series slide gate includes a dust-tight seal and handles abrasive materials. The slide gate is suitable for application such as whole grains, coal, metal powders or minerals up to 400° F (204° C). The heavy-duty frame is constructed with carbon steel and is available in standard sizes from 6 inches to 30 inches (100mm to 750mm) with custom square or rectangular sizes up to 72 inches (1.8m) and larger.
Additional features that enable the gate to close through a standing column of material are the beveled, abrasion resistant blade and a displacement pocket on the closing end of the valve. The slide gate includes "live loaded" wear compensating seals that prevent materials from escaping into the bonnet area of the gate. These seals are can be replaced without removing the valve from the processing line. The gate utilizes accessible, hardened steel cam-adjustable rollers instead of blade guides.
The system includes a wide selection of gate positioning controls, position indication switches and flanges. The gate also offers a variety of modifications to accommodate a range of temperatures, as well as corrosive, humid and explosive environments.
Actuation choices include electric, hydraulic, pneumatic, chain wheel, and hand crank. Features include hardened steel cam-adjustable rollers, grease zerks, side mounted switches, carbon steel contact, inlet/outlet transitions, seal access ports and removable seals.
