Vortex’s self-cleaning clear action gate handles powders, granular, or pellets in gravity flow or pneumatic conveying systems. Mounted horizontally between a hopper and an airlock rotary valve, the lightweight slide gate seals off the differential pressure that is accumulated in the airlock between the conveying line and the hopper.
The most recent improvement made to the clear action gate was to the seal in the valve’s body. This improved feature prevents material leakage into the atmosphere. In addition, the slide gate’s air purge was updated to greater reduce the material migration from material flow to valve body.
The valve is maintenance friendly since shims can be removed or added while the valve is in-line, providing customers more flexibility than before.
