Gate Valves Rounded Blade Gate for abrasive Materials
With its new RBG (rounded blade gate) Vortex presents an ideal solution for handling abrasive materials and for applications that may require metering.
Vortex announced the newest addition to its Titan Series line of valves. According to the manufacturer, the RBG (rounded blade gate) is an ideal solution for handling abrasive materials and for applications that may require metering. The rapid actuation of the blade can quickly start and stop the flow of material, which makes it ideal for controlling flow rates. The RBG can be equipped with a variety of actuation choices including pneumatic, electric and hydraulic. Designed to meet even very demanding applications when handling highly abrasive materials such as minerals, frac sand, or fly ash, the RBG gate handles dry material in gravity flow applications where positive material shut-off and dust tight sealing are required. The maintenance-friendly design of the gate features a replaceable bonnet seal while the valve is in-line reducing operating downtime. The precision cut elastomer seals minimise material leakage to atmosphere providing a safer and cleaner working environment. To extend the life of the gate, the RGB has abrasion resistant liners that can be replaced as wear points develop from abrasive materials.
