Heavy-Duty Discharge Valves

February 10, 2014

Lorenz discharge valves are manufactured with heavy-duty 3/16-in. stainless blades with built-in material scrapers that aid in minimizing material packing or building up. The square machined blade “dead ends” against the body of the valve allowing material to escape below. The discharge valve seals top to bottom to a maximum of 15 psi. Typically the valve is installed between a bin or hopper and a rotary airlock. Product flow from the bin above can be controlled without shutting off the rotary airlock. The discharge valve will vent air only (not product) from the perforated steel on the bottom of the valve. As an option, the valve can be air purged to prevent any venting of air. The discharge valve can cut through a standing column of material without using a special service inlet. Lorenz Conveying Products Corp., Cobourg, ON, Canada 800-263-7782 www.lorenz.ca
