SLIDE GATES, DIVERTERS, & LOADING SPOUTS

Ideal for handling dry bulk material in gravity flow, dilute phase or dense phase pneumatic conveying applications. Vortex slide gates and diverters 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 serves many industries. Some of the industries that use the Vortex products include but not limited to: Agriculture, Chemical, Coffee, Dairy, Foods, Milling, Pet Food, Petrochemical, Pharmaceutical, Plastics, Rubber, Textiles, Tobacco, Rock and Sand, Alumina, Bauxite, Cement, Clinker, Coal, Fly Ash, Glass Cullet and Lime/Limestone – to name a few.

Quantum Series = powder, pellets, and granules
Titan Series = aggregates, clinker, coal, frac sand, fly ash, gravel, sand and whole grains

HDPV2 Gate handling calcium carbide Ball valve replaced by heavy duty gate
HDPV2 Gate handling calcium carbide
Ball valve replaced by heavy duty gate An acetylene gas manufacturer contacted Vortex for advice to handle calcium carbide in their facility. Calcium carbide and acetylene gas react with one another to create oxyacetylene gas. This gas is used to fuel a very high temperature flame, which allows welding fabricators to weld and cut metal. The manufacturer was discharging batches of dry calcium carbide from one pressurized holding vessel into another. The batch was then fed into a reactor, where it was mixed with water to produce acetylene gas. Previously, the client used a ball valve in this process. Unfortunately, calcium carbide would build up inside the ball valve making the valve difficult to actuate. Two operators and a breaker bar were required to manually open and close the ball valve. This process was time-consuming and a safety hazard. The replacement valve would require: •The ability to close on dry solid materials. •Sealing gas in a pressurized system (12 psi | 0.8 bar) In most valve designs,

Titan slide gate handling alumina trihydrate
Titan slide gate handling alumina trihydrate
A Bauxite refinery contacted Vortex to source a gate to feed alumina trihydrate into a furnace. They needed a gate that could withstand the high temperatures from the furnace. Vortex engineered a Titan Slide Gate that features: •A surface finished with high temperature-resistant paint. •Seals constructed from bronze and graphite fiberglass to handle temperature spikes up 315⁰ C (600⁰ F). •A beveled blade constructed from 400 Brinell Hardness Number (BHN) abrasion-resistant steel. •A three-phase electric linear actuator that delivers the force required to close through a standing column of material, if necessary. In the case of an electrical loss, the actuator is also equipped with a manual hand wheel override. Alumina trihydrate is a white, odorless, powdery substance. It is primarily used in aluminum metal production, but is also used in epoxy, urethane and polyester resins as a smoke suppressant and flame retardant filler. Approximately 100 million tons

Vortex valve handling powdered glass
Vortex valve handling powdered glass
A company who had never purchased any products from Vortex called to inquire about the iris valve they saw advertised. They had used iris valves from two different manufacturers and had not been comfortable with either company’s pricing or valve mechanics. The company was looking to convey abrasive glass powder from beneath a tote system. Vortex’s challenge was to convince the customer that not all iris valves are manufactured similarly. The application for the valve was an installation beneath a tote handling powdered glass. The customer had experimented with different sleeve materials and found that a urethane-coated sleeve gave them longer wear with their abrasive powder. They also liked Vortex’s infinite position design, since the flow rate of powder was frequently changed as it was discharged from the bin. As the company was not acquainted with Vortex, the sales engineer handling the inquiry suggested they purchase a single 30cm iris valve with the infinite
