In this application, the Vortex Orifice Gates were designed for shutting off a silo handling polycarbonate pellets. The gates were destined for Asia to be installed in a coastal location with a tropical climate. Due to the coastal environment the customer needed the gates to be fully made from stainless steel and Vortex also supplied the gate with an epoxy coated air cylinder. The valves were supplied with Festo 24VDC air controls and magnetic reed switches.
This order consists of 100mm Vortex Orifice Gates fully constructed from 304 stainless steel, with 304 stainless steel DIN PN10 flanges with 316L contact parts and an epoxy coated air cylinder.
