This range of fully enclosed slide valves for the control of gravity fed powders and granules, has corrosion resistant cast aluminium alloy bodies with 304 stainless steel slide plates and inlet bores as standard. The slide plate runs on nylon 66 supports mounted on eccentric stainless steel pins for adjustment. Both versions use the same body and are dust-tight to atmosphere even when used with the finest materials. Inlet and outlet flanges are drilled M10 and spaced according to ANSI 150lb as standard. Flanges to customers’ requirements may also be supplied. Maximum operating temperature 80°C (150°C to special order). Also available in all stainless steel for applications where aluminium is unacceptable. These valves are not designed to close through a static column of material.
PNEUMATIC VALVE TYPE SP
Operation is by means of a double acting cylinder with stainless steel piston rod, controlled by a single solenoid valve, pipe connections being made to the cylinder. As supplied, the valve will close in the event of a failure
in the electricity supply. Switches for electrical indication of fully open and closed positions are fitted as an optional extra. Switches and solenoid valves to customers’ choice or for use in hazardous areas can also be fitted.
