SALINA, KANSAS, U.S. — The Vortex Titan Series TSG Valve is designed to meet the most demanding applications when handling heavy-duty abrasive materials such as sand, gravel, coal, whole grains, metal powders or minerals. The TSG Valve handles dry material in gravity flow applications where positive material shut-off and dust tight sealing are required.
This slide gate is available in a wide variety of configurations with rectangular sizes and customer specific hole patterns. The TSG Valve has “live loaded” nylon seals that extend service life by compensating for wear and provide an exceptional material seal across the gate and to atmosphere. The TSG Valve has replaceable liners that can be swapped while the valve is still in-service vastly reducing downtime. The gate utilizes easily accessible, hardened steel cam-adjustable rollers and polymer blade guides — a feature that is critical to maintaining a positive seal.
Adapting the slide gate to a system is made easy with a wide selection of gate positioning controls, position indication switches and flanges. The gate also offers a wide variety of modifications to accommodate a range of temperatures, corrosive, humid, and explosive environments.
Vortex slide gates offer a wide variety of actuation choices – including electric, hydraulic, pneumatic, chain wheel and hand crank. Features include hardened steel cam-adjustable rollers, grease zerks, side mounted switches, carbon steel contact, inlet/outlet transitions, seal access ports, removable seals and more.
