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 valves serve many industries. Some of the industries that use the Vortex Valves 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

Flex tube diverter handling book trimmings
Flex tube diverter handling book trimmings
The bookmaking process requires individual sheets of paper be stitched into a spine and cover. The resulting stack of paper is then trimmed so that all pages are perfectly aligned with each other. The paper trimmings must then be collected for disposal or recycling. A printing company contacted Vortex searching for a method to convey the wasted materials away from the trimmer through a vacuum system toward two collection points. When conveying material away from the trimmer, each type of trimming poses an issue. The individual strips of paper are light and can be conveyed long distances through a dedicated line. The spine pieces are heavier and can only be conveyed shorter distances. Previously, the company was able to run a direct line to transfer paper strips toward the bailer, but sometimes the long strips of paper collected in various areas of the diverter, causing it to seize up and not work properly. The spine pieces also had to be removed from the trimmer by

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 flex tube diverter handling sugar
Vortex flex tube diverter handling sugar
The conveying and storage of sugar create many potential problems. Moisture absorption is a major issue. Moisture causes sugar to cling to itself and everything it touches. This, in turn, creates flow as well as equipment actuation problems. Because sugar absorbs moisture easily, lowering the relative humidity in the conveying line with a desiccant dehumidifier aids in allowing the sugar to be transported dry throughout the system, easing moisture issues. Material velocity within the conveying line, and even a change in seasons, are other factors to consider. When applying diverter valves for sugar applications, Vortex sales engineers recommend the Vortex Flex Tube Diverter. This specialized diverter features a sliding port that allows material to travel straight through the valve, with no exposed blades or off-leg cavities. This design eliminates the potential for trapped material. A flexible tube made of stainless steel or rubber directs material unimpeded through
