Vortex’s self-cleaning clear action gate is a valve that handles powders, granular or pellets in gravity flow or pneumatic conveying systems. Mounted horizontally, the machined square-edged blade mechanically clears the material from the sealing surfaces on each closing cycle allowing it to discharge beneath the valve. The square blade and seal design eliminates the open cavities where material collects in traditional gate valves, according to the company. The valve is now more maintenance friendly while in the field—shims can be removed or added while the valve is in-line, giving customers more flexibility than before.
