Waste To Energy Valve From Orbinox UK
Our DN700 (28”) ORBINOX ‘TL’ series through conduit knife gate valve technology was selected for use on an arduous bulk handling application, within a waste-to-energy plant, as the primary feed hopper isolation valve.
The specification demanded a ductile iron body, AISI 316 gate (hard chromed), bi-directional resilient sealing capability for a tight class shut-off and a ‘C’ type deflector cone, to protect the valves body from the abrasive medium, whilst guiding the bulk material through the centre of the valves bore.
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 a Valve Control Monitor, incorporating the 2-off REED type proximity switches and the integral 5/2 mono-stable solenoid valve. 1:1 ratio filter-volume boosters have been fitted to increase the speed of operation, in accordance with the process requirements.
