Vortex Valves released a new addition to its Titan Series line of valves. The rounded blade gate (RBG) is suitable for handling abrasive materials and for applications that may require metering. The RBG can be customized with a wide variety of actuation choices including pneumatic, electric and hydraulic.
The RBG gate handles dry material in gravity flow applications where positive material shut-off and dust-tight sealing are required. The gate includes a replaceable bonnet seal while the valve is in-line to help reduce operating downtime. Elastomer seals minimize material leakage to atmosphere. The RGB also has abrasion-resistant liners that can be replaced as wear points develop from abrasive materials.
The RBG gate is part of the Titan Series product line that Vortex launched in late 2012. Titan Series products have been engineered for handling highly abrasive material such as cement, clinker, coal, fly ash, sand, gravel, glass and limestone.
