The quick clean orifice gate, a sanitary gravity valve, now offers improved sealing performance, higher durability, easier maintenance, and fewer replacement parts. The Vortex Quick Clean gate is designed to handle dry bulk ingredients in the food, dairy, pharmaceutical, chemical, and other industries that require frequent or daily sanitation of equipment. The blade and seal design allows the valve to “self-clean” on the opening stroke, even on a flowing column of material, preventing material from packing on the valve’s internal seals. The gate has been redesigned to have no dead pockets or hidden areas that can lead to material spoilage or cross contamination.
