The new VIB is a compact gravity slide valve with minimum overall height for all kinds of powdery or granular materials stored in silos or bins.
Low-profile VIB slides valves are used where flow of a dry powder or granular material caused by gravity or conveying has to be intercepted. They may be fitted beneath hopper, bin, or silo outlets, on inlet and outlet spouts of mechanical conveyors, as well as above the inlet of telescopic loading spouts.
The wide use of WAM’s Sint engineering polymer ensures the highest degree of abrasion resistance, as well as no downtime for seal adjustment.
The special geometry of low-profile VIB slide valves and the various options in blade design enable their application in virtually all industries, including food processing.
Due to their design and to the engineering materials used, they are an economic and efficient solution in processing applications where contamination and material pollution are an issue.
A version with a stainless steel blade and frame, and food-grade seal is available for the food industry.
