  • Pinch Diverter Valves

    February 28, 2013

    Cyclonaire pinch diverter valves are built for obstruction-free flow of dry materials conveyed under pressure in dilute, semi-dense, and dense-phase pneumatic systems. They can direct material to two different destinations or be set up to combine material flows from two different sources. Each...

  • 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...

  • Polymer Pressure Relief Valves

    February 27, 2013

    VHS pressure relief valves are designed as a safety feature for silos to deal with abnormal pressure conditions. Sudden excess or suction pressure inside the silo structure must be dealt with instantly. Even though the VHS pressure relief valve ideally should never have to go into action, it must...

  • Rotor Detection System

    February 27, 2013

    The use of plastic rotors in GEA Nu-Con demountable rotary valves is a sound solution for eliminating rotary valve scraping, which is a possibility with full stainless steel construction. Abrasive or high-temperature products, however, require stainless steel rotors to be used. GEA Nu-Con has...
