The Titan Pressure Valve is designed to address higher-pressure applications up to 100 psig (6.8 barg) and higher temperatures up to 660° F (350° C). The TPV Gate is engineered for highly abrasive applications and requires minimal maintenance over the life of the valve. Featuring Vortex’s patented rising-blade technology ensures an optimal seal and positive material shutoff with the use of lifting lugs. This prevents the blade from jamming or packing material upon closure, which can cause serious downtime. Unlike most knife gates, the Vortex TPV contains a replaceable seat that can significantly increase the life of the valve.
This fully bonneted slide gate consists of cast ductile iron flanges with a hardened 440C stainless steel blade and seat. Flanges match #125/150 ANSI mounting pattern with through holes and blind tapped holes. A double acting air cylinder actuates the valve open and closed and optional metering controls are available. Material contact is 440C stainless steel and ductile iron.
- Dilute and Dense phase pneumatic conveying
- Gravity flow conveying

- Mounting boss for the addition of an optional proximity switch
- Standard sizes: 2″- 10″ | 50mm – 250mm
Rising Blade Design
The rising blade and lifting lug design ensures optimal seal by keeping the blade in contact with the seat reducing packing
The stainless steel seat in addition to the blade can be replaced increasing the service life of the valve
Spring loaded blade guides keep the blade and seat in contact creating a positive seal at all times
Air Purge Port
Used to pressurize the bonnet and keep material in the flow stream, the air purge is essential for higher pressure applications
High Temp Design
The ductile iron housing makes for a safer valve when dealing with higher temperature applications
Patented Rising Blade Design
The beveled leading edge of the blade closes into a matching beveled lower flange to force the blade into the seat. A matching bevel on the clevis forces the blade into the seat on the opposite end of the blade. The bevel on the leading edge of the blade ends before it reaches the blade guide. This forces material forward and back into the convey line.
Spring Loaded Blade Guides
The blade is kept in contact with the seat throughout the stroke of the air cylinder with the aid of blade guides. These guides are supported by multiple wave springs on both sides of the blade that apply constant upward pressure helping to seal the valves. This feature extends the service life of the valves and makes it ideal for higher pressure applications.
High Temperature Design
From the ductile iron housing to the precision metal-to-metal seal, the TPV contains no polymers or elastomers that can become problematic at high temperatures. The combination of a stainless steel piston rod and the air gap between the body and the air cylinder help reduce the transfer of heat to the air cylinder making it ideal for higher temperature applications.
The Compact Design makes removal easy if maintenance needs to be performed
The Replaceable seat, Blade and Blade Guides significantly increase valves life
The Packing Gland is removable while in-line for easy packing replacement.
