This DN500 (20″) ORBINOX ‘XC’ series Hopper Outlet knife gate valve was selected for use on a hydrated lime bulk handling application, as the primary silo isolation valve.
The metal seated valve was fitted with our ‘C’ type deflector cone, to protect the body from the abrasive medium, whilst guiding the bulk material through the centre of the valves bore, reducing the potential for any solids getting trapped within the cavity. The gate has been hard chromed, providing increased corrosion and abrasion resistance, whilst reducing the friction coefficient through the gland arrangement.
The valves body incorporates 5-off flushing ports c/w our purge system, engineered to ensure a uniform pressure at each flush port, for optimum performance.
The Hopper Outlet Knife Gate Valve has been automated with our double acting pneumatic cylinder, and fitted with our proprietary PneuLINK™ linear-to-rotary integrated control platform c/w our Valve Control Monitor, incorporating the 2-off limit switches, and the integral 5/2 mono-stable solenoid valve. The high visibility beacon provides visual indication of the open / closed positions.
