Vortex ® Roller Gate ™
With the Vortex Roller Gate valve, there is no metal on metal contact between the blade and the valve body. This feature eliminates the associated gate seizing and binding seen with other slide gate valves. The Vortex Roller Gate is an excellent choice for handling sticky material.
Dust tight - Pressure loaded, hard polymer seals are located above and below the blade. A pressure loaded UHMW polyethylene end liner seals the leading edge of the blade. Clean by design - Other slide gates typically contain ledges where material have the opportunity to cross-contaminate and spoil. Internal ledges have been eliminated in the Vortex Roller Gate valve.
Metal material contact points in the Vortex Roller Gate valve are 304 stainless steel. Materials of construction meet FDA requirements. This is an excellent slide gate for food grade applications.
The Vortex Roller Gate provides a dust-tight material seal. Gate also handles sticky and or abrasive materials.
