GatorGate Double-Dump Valve Provides Jam-Free Operation for Chunky Material


Aerodyne introduces its durable GatorGate Double-Dump Valve to feed and move chunky, fibrous, and abrasive material efficiently. These double dump valves work with low-pressure air or gravity feed systems where standard rotary valves are prone to failure. Unlike other double-dump gate valves, the GatorGate Double-Dump Valves have spring-loaded gate arms, and the gates open and close alternately, thereby preventing air seepage and maintaining proper pressure. The standard cam-operated gate mechanism is actuated with an electric motor and offers a reliable, cost-effective alternative to pneumatically controlled valves. In comparison, pneumatic versions of competitive double-dump gate valves require large volumes of shop air for operation.


Typical applications for the GatorGate Double-Dump Valve are dry material handling and bulk material handling in wood, scrap metal, plastics, cement, and various manufacturing industries. Available in three standard sizes of 8”, 10”, and 12” inlet diameters, they can handle flow rates from 85cu-ft/hr up to 320cu-ft/hr, and withstand temperatures up to 750°F. Their design provides low maintenance in dust collection, mixing, batch feeding, drying, material recovery, and gravity fed hopper operations where rotary valves fail.


All gate valves are made with heavy-duty carbon steel, gear reducers, cam mechanisms, and easy-access cleanout doors that don’t require tools. Optional features include stainless steel construction, an explosion proof motor, pneumatic air cylinders, and diaphragm actuators. High-temperature and high-pressure options are also available.
