The low-maintenance slide gate valve is available in either manual or pneumatic operation. In the manual version, minimal turning of the hand-wheel compresses or relaxes the leaf spring assembly allowing the slide plate to rise or drop from the inlet collar. The valve is then opened or closed by pulling or pushing on the hand wheel. The pneumatic valve operates by an air cylinder closing the valve by forcing the leaf spring assembly to compress against internal stoppers. The slide plate rises to seal against the inlet collar. As the air cylinder withdraws, the leaf springs relax, allowing the slide plate to drop and slide clear of the inlet.
This unit also comes in a wide range of sizes, is offered in carbon or stainless steel versions, and is ideal for high temperatures and severe-duty applications. The slide gate valve lends itself to a wide range of free-flowing materials such as chemicals, minerals, foodstuffs, and plastics.
