Specially for the bulk handling industry designed shut-off valve since more than a quarter of a century produced the family-owned company founded in 1984 in the Hessian Trebur AKO fittings & separation GmbH high-quality fitting solutions, which are characterized mainly by their diversity. Although the slide and valves be developed steadily, on one thing doesn’t change: the quality. Also the bulk material slide is economical, reliable and high quality. He belongs to the application-related separation solutions of the Hesse family business. The slider represents a special form of the flat slide. He seals on one side and as intermediate flange valve be easily incorporated into existing industrial plants. The bulk material handling valves can be shut off and controlled rules above all powdery or granulated media. For this reason, the pusher system especially in the chemical and food industry is popular.
He also occurs in the feed area, he got an alternative name: silo outlet valve. The Nominal diameters range from DN50 to DN600. Also here is it on the site, for which the user chooses. It is important that the media can smoothly pass the slide. The special construction avoids production traffic jams. This is favored by the massive Mono block housing.
When higher sizes the valve housing with additional stiffening ribs. So the bulk material handling valves can withstand high loads. The closing behavior is supported thanks to sophisticated lead wedges. Another feature is that flush connections exist. So, the slide can be cleaned with compressed air, water, or steam. This is essential especially in the food industry. The slide plate in stainless steel seals safely and free of corrosion. The cutting edge is even able to cut through solid materials. The bulk material handling valves can be operated either manually using a hand lever or Handwheel, or one opts for the automated drive variants, the pneumatic or be controlled electrically. Existing slider can be changed thanks to a suitable conversion set on a different kind of drive.
