VG Slide Valves are a perfect solution for all heavy-duty applications where interception of gravity material flow is required. They are suitable for virtually all industrial sectors including the food industry.
Reliable, long-term operation
Minimised material cross-contamination
DescriptionVG-type Slide Valves are entirely manufactured from carbon steel or stainless steel. Safe material interception and excellent durability are guaranteed. This type of valve is designed to meet the most demanding applications when handling abrasive materials such as sand, gravel, coal, or whole grain in heavy-duty applications. The ideal equipment for gravity applications, VG-type Slide Valves are available in larger sizes than the VL-type (refer to relevant page). They are equipped with two replaceable, abrasion-resistant seals. The valves are available in various configurations. In the VG-version the Slide Valves come with a square cross section, in the VGR version the cross section is rectangular.
FunctionVG Slide Valves are used in all heavy-duty applications where interception of gravity material flow is required. The valves are mounted on the outlets of hoppers, tanks, silos, mechanical conveyors, or on the inlet of loading bellows. VG Slide Valves are suitable for virtually all industrial sectors including the food industry.
- Carbon steel or stainless steel valve frame and blade
- Limited number of components
- Quick and easy maintenance
- Painted carbon steel frame prevents rusting
- Sizes of up to 1,000 x 1,000 mm (3.3 x 3.3 ft)
- Interchangeable actuators: manual, pneumatic or electric gear motor
- Service inlet to deflect material away from seals and rollers to reduce wear
BenefitsVG Slide Valves provide reliable, long-term operation in applications where carbon steel slide gates generally tend to corrode. Traditional roller-supported slide gates are usually equipped with ledges where material can build up. VG Slide Valves come without ledges, thus minimising material cross-contamination and spoilage.
