StopTight® Slide Gate
Aerodyne®, a division of Abanaki Corporation, announces the 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. A leaf spring-assisted slide plate seals against the inlet collar to provide an air tight seal when closed. 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 and is offered in carbon steel or stainless steel versions. This unit also comes in a wide range of sizes and is perfect for high-temperatures and severe-duty applications. The Slide Gate Valve is suitable for a wide range of free-flowing materials such as chemicals, minerals, foodstuffs, and plastics. Aerodyne also offers a range of valves, including rotary, double dump, trickle, and knife gate valves.
