Years of positive experience with Vortex valves in their other plants made the choice for slide gates an easy one. Past maintenance issues with a previous spout supplier caused them to consider the Vortex Loading Spout. The client sought equipment that would provide excellent life-cycle costs, considering the material handled.
The Vortex Loading Spout's proprietary four-cable lifting design provides maximum stability and more lifting torque. The center mount motor offers better protection from the elements and easy accessibility. The spout also features three-piece, computer numerical control (CNC)-machined pulleys. The Vortex Loading Spout's 10-year cable warranty is virtually unheard of in the industry.
Vortex’s attention to what they have incorporated as standard features, combined with the spout's EPA-friendly dustless design, made the choice of Vortex Loading Spouts an easy one.
