Slide Gates & Diverter Valves
Vortex slide gates and diverters are ideal for handling dry bulk material in gravity flow, dilute phase or dense phase pneumatic conveying applications. They are designed and engineered with two main principals in mind:
1. Extend the service life of the valve and
2. Perform maintenance without taking the valve out of line.
Vortex valves serve many industries including chemical, cement, coal, food, frac sand, grain, minerals, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, plastics, polymer, rubber and mining.
Quantum Series = powder, pellets, and granules
