SLIDE GATES, DIVERTERS, & LOADING SPOUTS

Ideal for handling dry bulk material in gravity flow, dilute phase or dense phase pneumatic conveying applications. Vortex slide gates and diverters are designed and engineered with two main principals in mind: 1. extend the service life of the valve and 2. perform maintenance without taking the valve out of line.

Vortex products serve many industries. Some of the industries that use the Vortex slide gates, diverters and loading spouts include: Agriculture, Chemical, Coffee, Dairy, Foods, Milling, Pet Food, Petrochemical, Pharmaceutical, Plastics, Rubber, Textiles, Tobacco, Rock and Sand, Alumina, Bauxite, Cement, Clinker, Coal, Fly Ash, Glass Cullet and Lime/Limestone – to name a few.

Dual Cylinder Roller Gate to Handle Sorbitol The flow of Sorbitol, a sweetener used in foods, oral care products and pharmaceuticals, is sometimes hard to stop.  A Vortex Roller Gate is fit for this task.
Dual Cylinder Roller Gate to Handle Sorbitol
The flow of Sorbitol, a sweetener used in foods, oral care products and pharmaceuticals, is sometimes hard to stop. A Vortex Roller Gate is fit for this task. A client who manufactures chocolate, candy and chewing gum in the United Kingdom had a special application for a roller gate. In this application, the dual cylinder Vortex Roller Gate would be used to stop the material flow of sorbitol in the client’s process. Sorbitol is a sweetener used in foods, oral care products and pharmaceuticals. This Vortex Roller Gate was designed with double-acting air cylinder actuators and was constructed with a 150mm (6”) special service inlet to match the customer’s pattern. The valve body is 6061-T6 aluminum with a 304 stainless steel blade and seal retainers. Material contact is 304 stainless steel and polymer. The valve blade is electropolished to address the stickiness of the product being handled. The air cylinders are equipped with magno-pistons for use with magnetic reed position indication switches. Milled access slots in the side frame allows removal and replacement of bonnet seals while the gate remains in service.

Titan Slide Gate with Epoxy Coated Air Cylinder Handling Pet Feedstock The Vortex Titan Slide Gate consists of a heavy-duty carbon steel frame with 304 stainless steel blade. Material contact is 304 stainless steel and polymer.
Titan Slide Gate with Epoxy Coated Air Cylinder Handling Pet Feedstock
The Vortex Titan Slide Gate consists of a heavy-duty carbon steel frame with 304 stainless steel blade. Material contact is 304 stainless steel and polymer. These valves will be utilised in a feed system that comprises of two Titan Gate Valves, separated by an intermediate feed hopper. The valves will operate in tandem to facilitate semi-continuous feeding of solid waste pet material via a feed hopper into a feed trough. The valves are designed to handle feedstock up to 50mm to a design temperature of 205° C and are ATEX rated. This 600mm rectangular Vortex Titan Slide Gate features a heavy-duty valve frame construction based on formed carbon steel channel with a beveled, 304 stainless steel blade and liner. Material contact is 304 stainless steel and polymer. Access in the valve frame allows for removal and replacement of bonnet seals while the gate remains in service. The gate is actuated by an epoxy-coated, double acting air cylinder equipped with a magnetic ring which activates a magnetic position indicating switch.

Vortex Handslide Gate Assists at Bourbon Distillery
Vortex Handslide Gate Assists at Bourbon Distillery
A bourbon distillery needed a method to control the flow of grains into the cookers. The Vortex Handslide Gates were instrumental in introducing milled corn, malt, and rye to the start of the distilling process in this plant. The Handslide Gates are manually operated process gates used to control flow on the inlet/outlet of hoppers, bins or totes in applications where powered gates are not feasible or desired. The manual double-handles are accessible on both ends for an effective push-pull operation. The frame, flanges and safety cover on these 101 mm (4”) gates are made from aluminium, while the blade and all material contact areas are made from 304 stainless steel and polymer.

Halar Coated Vortex Seal Tite Diverter to Handle Acid Flake For the corrosive nature of the material handled all internal areas of the valve are Halar coated. Material contact is 316L stainless steel, polymer, and rubber.
Halar Coated Vortex Seal Tite Diverter to Handle Acid Flake
For the corrosive nature of the material handled all internal areas of the valve are Halar coated. Material contact is 316L stainless steel, polymer, and rubber. In this application, the customer specified Halar coating on a 254 mm (10”) Vortex Seal Tite Diverter over other liner options due to past success with this product on chutes and other equipment they have in service. All internal areas were Halar coated to address the corrosive nature of the material being handled. The valve body, with a straight through flow design and one offset leg, is made from 316L stainless steel. Material contact is 316L stainless steel, polymer, and rubber. The valve has a removable access cover for quick inline service or cleaning without removing the valve from the line. The customer also requested an epoxy coated double acting air cylinder to protect from chemical corrosion. The epoxy coat is a more economical option and requires a shorter lead time than a stainless steel air cylinder. The piston rod, tie rod and tie rod nuts are stainless steel.

Four-way wye line diverters to handle protein pulver
Four-way wye line diverters to handle protein pulver
In this application, a Danish producer of animal protein solutions for the food and beverage industry will utilize seven four-way Vortex Wye Line Diverters to divert the flow of protein pulver in the production of food products. The Vortex Wye Line Diverter features an aluminum valve body with live-loaded, wear-compensating seals with a 304 stainless steel blade. Inlet and outlet weldments are constructed from 304 stainless steel and material contact areas are 304 stainless steel and polymer. The inlet features a straight-through conveying line design for easier “in-line” installation of multiple diverters. The diverter’s double acting air cylinder actuator is equipped with a magno-piston for use with magnetic reed position indication switches.

Seal Tite Diverter to Handle Soybeans in The Netherlands Vortex supplied two 3-Way Seal Tite Diverters with an opening of 500 mm x 750 mm and a weight 544 kg, powered by explosion-proof electric actuators.
Seal Tite Diverter to Handle Soybeans in The Netherlands
Vortex supplied two 3-Way Seal Tite Diverters with an opening of 500 mm x 750 mm and a weight 544 kg, powered by explosion-proof electric actuators. Two identical Vortex 3-Way Seal Tite Diverters were bespoked to divert soybeans from a screw conveyor to a load out station in a grain elevator in The Netherlands. The large diverter opening is 500 mm x 750 mm and weighs 544 kg. The two blades inside this Seal Tite Diverter are each powered by explosion-proof, quarter-turn electric actuators (380V/3PH/50HZ). While the blades and valve body are constructed from carbon steel, the material contact areas contain replaceable abrasion resistant, steel liners (400 BHN). A side panel allows access to the diverter interior for inspection or maintenance without having to remove the diverter from place. The inlet flange matches the customer’s custom bolt-hole pattern.
