Dense Flow Cone Valve

February 27, 2013

The Dense Flow cone valve is used in conjunction with the Dense Flow charging hopper as the main inlet and sealing valve for the Dense Flow conveying system. The charging hopper’s design eliminates head pressure, and vents the displaced air when material fills the pressure vessel, thus allowing the single cone valve to completely seal the pressure vessel once full. Unlike a butterfly valve, the cone valve’s seal actually becomes tighter during pressurization. It is not uncommon for a Dense Flow cone valve to last 15 years or more before needing a seal replacement.
