Slidegates & Diverters

Vortex is considered the world leader in valves for handling dry bulk solids. It all began in 1980 when the company was awarded a patent on the Orifice Gate Valve. This new and innovative valve design surpassed the industry’s expectations for handling dry materials in pneumatic conveying. Soon, following the orifice gate came launch of the Wye Line Diverter Valve. This diverter valve applied the same design concepts of the orifice gate dramatically improving process efficiencies when compared to traditional flapper or tunnel style diverters.

QUANTUM ORIFICE SLIDE GATE VALVE


Suitable for – Pneumatic & Gravity Flow Conveying



The Vortex Quantum Series Orifice Slide Gate Valve is specifically engineered to handle dry bulk solids in gravity flow, dilute phase or vacuum conveying systems with pressures up to 15psig (1bar-g) depending on size. Traditional slide gates and butterfly valves commonly allow packing of material, which prevents positive air and material shut off.

Unlike common knife gates and butterfly valves, the Orifice Slide Gate valve is specifically engineered to handle dry bulk powders, pellets and granules. Knife Gates rely on soft elastomeric seals which erode or tear away in service. Butterfly Valves incorporate discs that cause significant flow restrictions, thus impacting system performance and throughput. Both designs promote wedging and packing materials, preventing positive air and material shut off. The orifice gate eliminates design flaws associated with knife gates and butterfly valves.
  • Handles powders, granules and pellets
  • Mechanically self cleans on opening stroke
  • No pinch points or exposed moving parts
  • Wear compensating hard polymer seals
  • Unobstructed opening of gate
  • Seals protected from material flow stream


TPV – SLIDE GATE VALVE


Suitable for – Gravity, Pneumatic & Dense Phase Conveying

The Titan Pressure Valve is designed to address higher-pressure applications up to 100 psig (6.8 barg) and higher temperatures up to 660° F (350° C). The TPV Gate is engineered for highly abrasive applications and requires minimal maintenance over the life of the valve. Featuring Vortex’s patented rising-blade technology ensures an optimal seal and positive material shutoff with the use of lifting lugs. This prevents the blade from jamming or packing material upon closure, which can cause serious downtime. Unlike most knife gates, the Vortex TPV contains a replaceable seat that can significantly increase the life of the valve.

This fully bonneted slide gate consists of cast ductile iron flanges with a hardened 440C stainless steel blade and seat. Flanges match #125/150 ANSI mounting pattern with through holes and blind tapped holes. A double acting air cylinder actuates the valve open and closed and optional metering controls are available. Material contact is 440C stainless steel and ductile iron.





  • Dilute and Dense phase pneumatic conveying
  • Gravity flow conveying
  • Handles abrasive materials like minerals, frac sand, and fly ash
  • Standard sizes: 2?- 10? (50mm – 250mm) | Contact us for custom sizes
  • Mounting boss for the addition of an optional proximity switch


HDPV2 – SLIDE GATE VALVE


Suitable for – Pneumatic & Gravity Flow Conveying



Designed to address higher pressure applications up to 75 psig (5 bar-g) depending on size, the Vortex Quantum Series HDPV2 valve sets itself apart from traditional industry slide gates. The rising blade design provides positive material shut-off by means of an o-ring seal on the inlet of the valve. This design feature eliminates the issues related to packing or material causing abrasion to the end seal.

  • Designed to handle abrasive and stickey materials
  • Gravity flow conveying
  • Seals fine material in higher aeration or pressure applications
  • Patented rising blade action ensures optimal seal
  • Seals protected from blast abrasion
  • Serviceable while in-line
  • Does not pack material upon closure
  • Material construction and custom size options available
  • Standard Size 4” to 16”


WYE LINE DIVERTER VALVE


Suitable for – Pneumatic & Gravity Flow Conveying



The Vortex Quantum Series Wye Line Diverter is specifically engineered to handle dry bulk solids in vacuum or dilute phase pneumatic conveying systems with pressures up to 15 psig (1 bar-g) depending on size. A full flow orifice provides unrestricted conveying of material. The live loaded seals are shielded from abrasion by metal insert.

  • Handles powders, granules and pellets
  • Shifts “on the fly”
  • Wear compensating hard polymer seals
  • Unobstructed opening
  • Positive seal through closed port
  • Serviceable while in-line
  • Diverts or converges material flow
  • Available in 2-way, 3-way or 4-way configurations
  • Material construction & custom size options available
  • Standard Size 2” to 12”


SEAL TITE DIVERTER VALVE


Suitable for – Gravity Flow Conveying



The Vortex Seal Tite Diverter is designed for use in gravity flow applications where material can be diverted from one source to either two or three destinations. The seal tite diverter offers a removable access door for interior inspection, cleaning and maintenance.

  • Handles powders, granules and pellets
  • Leading edge of blade protected from material flow
  • Removable access door for internal inspection, cleaning & maintenance
  • Wear compensating shaft seal prevents leakage
  • Positive seal of dust and fine powders
  • Available in 2-way and 3-way configurations
  • Internal access without tools
  • Standard Size 4” to 30”


GRAVITY VEE DIVERTER VALVE


Suitable for – Gravity Flow Conveying



The Vortex Gravity Vee Diverter is designed to divert dry bulk solids in gravity flow conveying system. The design allows for material flow through both outlets simultaneously, one outlet at a time, or a complete shut off of the flow. The gravity vee diverter is also capable of metering flow through either outlet port.

  • Handles powders, granules and pellets
  • Design allows for total material flow control
  • Wear compensating hard polymer seals
  • Seals protected from material flow stream
  • Positive seal of dust and fine powders
  • Serviceable while in-line
  • Standard Size 5” to 24”


IRIS VALVE


Suitable for – Gravity Flow Conveying



The patented Vortex Iris Valve is designed specifically to handle dry bulk solids in gravity discharge of free flowing material from bins, bulk bags, chutes and hoppers. The Vortex Iris valve is designed with stainless steel control rings, metal handle and trigger lock and nylon shim for durability and smooth actuation. A form fitted fabric sleeve provides a dust tight seal and product barrier which prevents material leakage into the atmosphere.

  • Ideal for bulk bag unloading
  • Smooth actuation with no binding or galling
  • Unrestricted flow of material
  • Fabric sleeve prevents material degradation
  • SS Control Ring
  • Standard Size 4” to 18”
