March 24, 2014 - Able to be equipped with various actuation choices, including pneumatic, electric, and hydraulic, Titan Series RBG (rounded blade gate) handles dry, abrasive material in gravity flow applications where positive material shut-off and dust tight sealing are required. Blade actuation speed can quickly start/stop the flow of material, while bonnet seal may be replaced while valve is in-line for streamline maintenance. Precision cut elastomer seals minimize material leakage.

Rounded Blade Gate Added to Vortex's Titan Series

Press release date: March 19, 2014

SALINA, KAN., USA – Vortex announces the newest addition to its Titan Series line of valves. The  RBG (rounded blade gate) is an ideal solution for handling abrasive materials and for applications that may require metering. The rapid actuation of the blade can quickly start and stop the flow of material, which makes it ideal for controlling flow rates.  The RBG can be equipped with a wide variety of actuation choices including pneumatic, electric and hydraulic.

Designed to meet the most demanding applications when handling highly abrasive materials such as minerals, frac sand, fly ash and whole grains, the RBG gate handles dry material in gravity flow applications where positive material shut-off and dust tight sealing are required. The maintenance-friendly design of the gate features a replaceable bonnet seal while the valve is in-line reducing operating downtime. The precision cut elastomer seals minimize material leakage to atmosphere providing a safer and cleaner working environment. To extend the life of the gate, the RGB has abrasion resistant liners that can be replaced as wear points develop from abrasive materials.

The RBG gate is part of the Titan Series product line that Vortex launched in late 2012. Titan Series products are engineered for handling highly abrasive material such as cement, clinker, coal, fly ash, sand, gravel, glass and limestone. Titan Series valves incorporate several design features to minimize downtime and increase process efficiency.
