Designed to address higher-pressure applications up to 75 psig (5 barg) depending on size, the Vortex HDPV2 sets itself apart from traditional industry slide gates. The rising blade design provides positive material shut-off by means of an O-ring seal on the inlet of the valve. This design feature eliminates the issues related to packing of material causing abrasion to the end seal.

- A butterfly valve’s blade disc is always in flow stream. The leading edge of blade is abraded away as material flows through valve, degrading the sealing capacity. The HDPV2 features an unobstructed orifice eliminating blade abrasion while material flows through the valve.
- Typical slide gates pack material into the end of the valve preventing full closure. The HDPV2 has a built in displacement area at the end of the valve body preventing material buildup. The blade self-cleans on the closing stroke allowing any residual material to flow through the valve after the blade has sealed reducing the need for maintenance and costly downtime.
- Cartridge assembly is serviceable while valve is in-line
- Wider bonnet area and elimination of pocket allows for easy blade removal
- Replaceable nylon insert on clevis allows for easy and inexpensive maintenance (standard temp only)
- All sealing joints have reusable pre-cut gaskets
- Air cylinder mount is incorporated into the frame reducing leakage areas
- Additional room in the bonnet area simplifies the blade removal
- Adjustable exterior components restore sealing capability as valve wears
