Engineered Solutions for handling dry bulk material have always been a part of Vortex. Our application engineers listen to the customer’s needs and match the right valve to the application parameters. Material characteristics, environment, and valve requirements all must be considered to properly modify the valve to fit the application. Because the combinations are nearly endless, a commodity valve or off the shelf valve will not be enough. Vortex offers literally millions of variations of slide gates and diverter valves to meet almost any dry bulk processing application. We can sometimes take one of our standard valves and make some minor modifications to fit the customer’s application. Other times the only thing left standard on the valve is the famous black and silver Vortex sticker.
