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.
SCREW VALVE TYPE SS
Movement of the slide plate is by a double start stainless steal acme screw and nylon 66 nut and can be fitted for either handwheel or chainwheel operation. This valve, as well as for use as a shut off valve is ideal for metering the material flow with the plate in the part open/closed position.
