Vortex to exhibit at BulkEx 2017
Vortex will be exhibiting slide gates and diverter valves in Stand 39 at Eastwood Hall in Nottingham, England, on 18-19 October.
Vortex specialises in innovative valve solutions for the dry bulk industry. Since 1977, Vortex has provided quality slide gates, diverters, iris valves and loading spouts for handling dry bulk solids in gravity, vacuum, dilute, or dense phase applications. Vortex products are designed to maximise production efficiency, eliminate material leakage, maintenance friendly and increase service life.
Quantum Series Orifice Gate
Unlike common knife gates and butterfly valves, the Orifice Gate is specifically engineered to handle dry bulk powders, pellets, and granules. Its narrow profile and lightweight construction allows for easy installation of the valve either horizontal or vertical. The Vortex orifice gate’s blade and seal design allows the valve to “self-clean” on the opening stroke, which prevents material from packing on the valve’s internal seals. Shim removal for seal adjustments is quick and easy; and blade adjustments can be performed directly on the conveying line.
Quantum Series Wye Line Diverter
The Wye Line Diverter is designed to divert powder, pellets, or granules from one source to multiple destinations, or converge from varied sources to one destination. The light-weight valve is available in 2, 3, or 4-way configurations and can be installed horizontal or vertical. Unlike common flap or plug diverters, Vortex’s wye line diverters offer a wide range of dilute phase and vacuum pneumatic conveying options, and can be serviced without taking the valve out of the production line. The diverter is capable of shifting directions “on the fly” while the system’s blower or vacuum pump continues to operate.
The Vortex Roller Gate is the best choice for handling dry material in gravity flow or low-pressure applications. This gate is available in a wide variety of configurations including rectangular sizes and customer specific hole patterns. It has live-loaded seals that extend the service life by compensating for wear. These seals provide an excellent material seal across the gate and to atmosphere. They can also be replaced while the valve is in-line.
