Vortex has been engineering and manufacturing components for the milling industry for many years. Through innovation and product design, we are recognized as a valuable supplier for millers all over the world. Vortex supports the milling industry and milling education through organizations like the IAOM, IMEF and Kansas State University. Through this partnership, Vortex continues to develop better components that enhance the efficiency of the milling process.
There are two main reasons millers choose Vortex for their slide gates and diverter valves.
1. Sealing Technology™ – Vortex gates and diverters are engineered to create a positive seal of fine dust and powders. Dust tight gates and diverters reduce airborne fugitive dust that can create unproductive working conditions and create safety hazards from dust accumulation. They also reduce “house cleaning” costs that can be very expensive over the course of a year. A cleaner mill runs more efficiently and provides better working conditions for employees.
2. Ease of Maintenance – Milling plant supervisors and maintenance personnel appreciate Vortex gates and diverter valves for their easy maintenance features. If maintenance is needed, Vortex components can be serviced without removing them from the processing line. This reduces costs associated with downtime and lost production.
