Vortex Gate Valves, Diverters & Loading Solutions

After viewing the videos below you will likely note our depth of application experience.  We have something for each application.

Dan Jones of Vortex Global explains the Vortex® Quantum Orifice Gate™. The Orifice Gate is specifically engineered to handle dry bulk solids in gravity flow, dilute phase, or vacuum conveying systems with pressures up to 15 psig (1 barg) depending on size. Traditional slide gates and butterfly valves commonly allow packing of material, which prevents positive air and material shutoff. Key Industries Served: Agriculture, Chemicals, Foods, Minerals, Petrochemicals, Plastics, Textiles
Cody Bucker of Vortex Global discusses the Vortex® Flex Tube Diverter™. The Flex Tube Diverter eliminates material cross contamination through a positive seal across the closed port. Pockets where material can lodge and remain trapped have also been eliminated. A smooth unobstructed transition from inlet to outlet shields the wear compensating seals from abrasion. Key Industries Served: Agriculture, Chemicals, Foods, Minerals, Petrochemicals, Plastics, Textiles
Kevin Cavender of Vortex Global highlights the Vortex® Seal Tite Diverter™. The 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. Key Industries Served: Agriculture, Chemicals, Foods, Minerals, Petrochemicals, Plastics, Textiles
Andy Anderson of Vortex Global highlights the Vortex® Clear Action Gate™. The Clear Action Gate is designed for use in gravity flow or pneumatic conveying systems up to 15 psig (1 barg) depending on size.  Key Industries Served: Agriculture, Chemicals, Foods, Minerals, Petrochemicals, Plastics, Textiles
Kevin Peterson of Vortex Global explains the Vortex® Titan Pressure Valve™. The TPV gate 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. 
The Vortex Roller Gate (Square Shut-off Gate) is for handling dry material in gravity flow or low-pressure applications. This gate is available in a wide variety of configurations including rectangular sizes and customer specific hole patterns. Key Industries Served: Agriculture, Chemicals, Foods, Minerals, Petrochemicals, Plastics, Textiles
For over 40 years, Vortex Global has provided solids and bulk handling solutions for global leaders in the pet food industry. We’ve identified key issues with industry components, such as interior accessibility and sanitation. These improvements extend service life, prevent cross contamination and spoilage while reducing life cycle and housekeeping costs.
At this facility, the client is producing forage cubes. Upstream in the process, hay bales are broken down and minor ingredients are added before the raw materials are formed into cubes. Next, the cubes are transferred into cloth silos. Below each silo, a common belt conveyor transports cubes to a packaging line, where they are loaded into 50 lb bags and bulk bags.
Ash Grove Cement in Chanute, Kansas, USA was able to reduce loading time by equipping their Vortex Loading Spout with a Dual-Axis Spout Positioner.
This rail car unloading station uses two Vortex Aggregate Diverters to divert industrial sand from a bucket elevator into three separate storage tanks, where the sand awaits loadout into trucks. During the first 4 years of operation, an estimated 520,000 tons of industrial sand was handled. Though the chute work leading up to the storage tanks has required periodic repair and replacement due to abrasion, no maintenance has been performed on the Vortex Aggregate Diverters.

The VORTEX Titan Valve Series Catalog

Staying true to the Vortex design philosophy, we identified a need in theheavy-duty and abrasive material handling industries. When handling suchmaterials, the most common causes of equipment maintenance orreplacement are erosive wear and impact wear, which causedamage to a valve’s internal parts. The Vortex Titan Series isspecifically designed to protect against these forms of wearand abrasion. Characterized by unique design androbust metal materials of construction, the VortexTitan Series features slide gates and divertersbuilt for durability, reliability, ease ofmaintenance and prolonged service life.
