This order by a coal refinery contained three Vortex Loading Solution products: a Vortex Telescoping Loading Spout, Dual Axis Spout Positioner and In Line Filter.
The Vortex Titan Slide Gate equipped with a v-notch blade and diamond special service inlet is designed to maintain a square discharge opening as the blade changes position.
The Vortex Titan Pressure Valve seals dry material conveyed pneumatically. Two valves will be part of an expansion that will merge two pneumatic conveying lines into a barge loading station.
These three Vortex Telescoping Loading Spout feature 14” feed inlets with a load rate capacity of up to 15,000 ft³/hr (425 m³/hr).
The gates will be mounted at the side of two holding bins. They will introduce coal to a conveyor belt located directly beneath the bins. The belt transports the coal to a size reduction mill.
This Vortex 3-way Titan-Lined Diverter features replaceable, interior liners constructed of abrasion-resistant steel (400BHN) to combat wear from the material handled.
This application uses three Vortex products. The terminal manager stated that the complaints from neighboring businesses regarding dust exposure have been nonexistent since the system was installed.
The Vortex Titan Slide Gate is designed to handle abrasive materials conveyed by gravity. These application-specific gates were manufactured with stainless steel blades and electric actuators.
