CLEVELAND, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 09/20/11 -- Aerodyne® (http://www.dustcollectorhq.com/), a division of Abanaki Corporation, recently launched the new animated demo of their StopTight® Slide Gate material handling valve, a dependable, dust-tight component for controlling flow in a bulk material system. The unique slide gate drive action eliminates the need for racks, pinions, cams, or other internal mechanisms that tend to interfere with valve operation. Large clearances avoid jamming during operation and material flow is unimpeded by any restriction or obstruction when the Slide Gate Valve is open. The moving parts are self-cleaning.
The low-maintenance Slide Gate Valve is available in either manual or pneumatic operation. In the manual version, minimal turning of the handwheel compresses or relaxes the leaf spring assembly allowing the slide plate to rise or drop from the inlet collar. The valve is then opened or closed by pulling or pushing on the handwheel. The pneumatic valve operates by an air cylinder closing the valve by forcing the leaf spring assembly to compress against internal stoppers. The slide plate rises to seal against the inlet collar. As the air cylinder withdraws, the leaf springs relax, allowing the slide plate to drop and slide clear of the inlet.
This unit also comes in a wide range of sizes, is offered in carbon or stainless steel versions and is perfect for high temperatures and severe-duty applications. The Slide Gate Valve lends itself perfectly to a wide range of free-flowing materials such as chemicals, minerals, foodstuffs, and plastics.
