In this application, the Quantum Orifice Gate is being used to control the flow of plastic pellets.
This 12” Quantum Orifice Gate is equipped with custom flanged spool adapters that set the valve at a 15° angle. The access door was fabricated into the spool piece to allow for washout of the system after the lot is complete. The door also serves as a maintenance/inspection hatch. A proximity switch senses if the door is open or closed.
