Hand Slide Orifice Gate – Quantum Series

Hand Slide Orifice Gate – Quantum Series

Gravity Flow

The Vortex Hand Slide Orifice Gate is designed specifically to handle dry bulk solids in gravity flow conveying. A full flow orifice provides unrestricted conveying of material with no disk or ledges to impede flow or cause material bridging. The gate seat and live-loaded seals are protected from material flow by a metal insert. By design, the valve “self cleans” material from the seat on each stroke of the valve blade improving overall seat life.
