Vortex valves can be used for a range of purposes, such as railcar load-out, scale-hoppers, and in the milling, plastic, chemical and mineral industries.

A range of Vortex valves will be dispayed at this year’s Powtech, including the Vortex multi-port wye line diverter.

This interfaces directly with the user’s PLC, which makes the unloading process automated, and eliminates errors and injuries associated with railcard load-out, the company claims.

For closed-loop pneumatic conveying systems, the Vortex fill pass diverter can accommodate multiple conveying lines for filling scale-hoppers with different materials from multiple sources.  

According to the company, it can reduce fill times and eliminate the carry-over associated with traditional scale valves.

Key features

  • Multi-port wye line diverter has compensating seals that self-clean on each actuation
  • Seal plates in the fill pass diverter shield blast abrasion, allowing the diverter to seal air and material
  • Vortex uses precision laser cutting and bending technology to manufacture its valves 
  • Other Vortex products to be displayed at Powtech 2011 include the Vortex quantum series orifice gate, the Vortex titan series abrasion resistant slide gate and the vortex seal tite gravity diverter
