Aero-Slide Gate Valve

The Vortex® Aero-Slide™ Gate Valve is specifically designed to be used in tandem with the Vortex® Aero-Slide™ Conveyor. Designed much like a conventional Vortex roller-supported slide gate, the Aero-Slide Gate Valve features a vertical-mounted blade with a downward closing stroke.While the Aero-Slide Gate Valve can be used for metering, it is primarily intended to shut-off material flow.

Ideal application: Depending on application, the Aero-Slide Gate Valve can either be installed within the convey line or beneath the silo discharge, at the Aero-Slide Conveyor’s inlet.
