Our ORBINOX ‘XC’ series hopper outlet knife gate valve technology was selected for a critical biomass bulk handling application.
The valve has been automated with our double acting pneumatic actuator c/w our proprietary PneuLINK™ linear to rotary integrated control platform.
Our Intrinsically Safe Valve Control Monitor (VCM) was selected, with integral 5/2 mono-stable solenoid and 2-off P&F NAMUR sensors. The VCM acts as an integral junction box, reducing site cabling and installation costs. No exposed wires, IP67 ingress protected, and high visibility BEACON indicator, as standard features!
For this particular critical biomass bulk handling application, the complete assembly has been subjected to an ATEX risk assessment, as defined in 2014/34/EU, and is certified for use within:
