Our ORBINOX ‘XC’ series Hopper Outlet knife gate valve technology was selected for use on a bulk handling application, as the primary silo isolation valves.
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 hopper outlet knife valve 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 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 Position Monitor, incorporating the 2-off limit switches. The high visibility beacon provides visual indication of the open / closed positions.
