The valve will be used to discharge materials from a storage silo to a rotary valve and blowing system sending raw materials to process, diverting material flow.
Abrasion is a killer when it comes to bulk handling equipment, as the flow of material wears down components. Vortex has developed a slide gate that can handle some of the most abrasive materials.
These Vortex Aggregate Diverters are used to handle the discharged material from a bucket elevator to the different storage silos below. Special modifications were made for resistance to abrasion.
Maintenance is a necessity when handling dry bulk materials. When designing systems for these processes, factors must be taken into consideration to ease the frequency of required maintenance.
Lime and limestone are handled through these diverters. Used to divert heavy-duty and/or abrasive dry bulk solid materials from one source toward two or three destinations in gravity-fed applications.
When selecting equipment for the handling of dry bulk solid materials in gravity flow applications, there are several factors that should be taken into consideration.
Many of the ingredients and chemical compounds used in the production of fertilizer require the need for special consideration when selecting the components to be used in its manufacturing.
The maintenance of dry bulk handling systems can be a timely, costly, and messy endeavor. When designing dry bulk solid handling components used in these systems, many principles must be considered.
