Count on Vortex® Roller Gates(TM) for a Dust-Tight Material Seal


SALINA, KS - Economical, versatile Vortex Roller Gates - available in a wide variety of configurations, including rectangular sizes and round inlet/outlet transitions for added functionality - are the premium choice for handling dry bulk material in gravity flow applications where positive material shutoff and dust tight sealing are required. Vortex Roller Gates, made by Vortex Valves North America, a division of the Salina Vortex Corporation, are ideal for many dry material applications, such as mixing and blending. The Roller Gate can be applied to shut off or meter the flow of fine and moderately abrasive powders and small to large granulars or pellets. It also handles sticky materials, horizontal or vertical valve orientation, and is ideal for the food, cement, chemical, plastics, and textile industries.

The Vortex Roller Gate features "live loaded" wear compensating seals that prevent materials from escaping into the bonnet area of the gate. These seals are easily replaced without removing the valve from the processing line. The Roller Gate utilizes easily accessible, nylon cam-adjustable rollers instead of blade guides - a feature that is critical to avoid material packing. Material packing can cause the valve to wear out prematurely. The Roller Gate also features an optional return pan to prevent material leakage into the atmosphere.

Adapting the Roller Gate to a system is made easy with a wide selection of gate positioning controls, position indication switches, and flanges. The Roller Gate also offers a wide variety of modifications to accommodate a range of temperatures, corrosive, humid, and explosive environments. Vortex Roller Gates offer a wide variety of actuation choices - including electric hydraulic, pneumatic, chainwheel, and hand crank. Standard sizes are from 6Ø to 36Ø (100mm to 900mm) and include an aluminum-channel frame and stainless-steel material contact. Options include rectangular sizes, stainless-steel construction, inlet/outlet transitions, seal access ports, removable seals, and more. Contact the factory for application specific information at 785-825-7177.
