Suitable for intermediate bulk container applications, the Vortex Iris Valve includes a compact handle to control, shut off, or meter material flow of non-abrasive to moderately abrasive powder, granules, or pellets in small, compact areas for gravity flow applications. It is also available with a quick release coupling for the pharmaceutical industry. The valve’s design features several trigger lock positions, stainless steel control ring, and stainless steel compact handle for minimal clearance issues and to protect the operator’s hand. Its form-fitted fabric sleeve provides a tight seal, product barrier, and unobstructed orifice – critical to maintain cleanliness and inhibit material leakage from the actuating parts across the valve or into the atmosphere. The inexpensive fabric sleeves can be easily replaced and are also ideal for closing on delicate or friable material. The valves are available in 100 to 450 mm sizes. A precision-machined design ensures that the valve components actuate smoothly and flange connections match and seal properly. Likewise, the valve’s compact, durable aluminum construction and quick actuation make it an ideal choice for closing off the flow of material from bins, bulk bags, chutes, and hoppers.
