Top Ten features of the Gemco Valve and how they solve common problems.
|Solids processing valve problems||GemcoValve Solutions|
|1. Material Bridging
The center vane of the butterfly valve causes material to bridge resulting in downtime and the use of vibrators, ramrods, hammers and other instruments of destruction.
|1. Full Port Openings!
Unlike a butterfly valve the shutoff disc swings completely out of the flow of the material preventing bridging and promoting mass flow.
|2. Material Jamming
The tracks of slidegate valves are traps
for the powder causing it to jam and resulting in sealing surface wear with every cycle of the valve.
|2. Self-cleaning Sealing Area!
Unlike a gatevalve, the self-cleaning action tends to wipe the material away from the sealing area instead of jamming abrasives into the sealing track.
|3. Material Packing
The tight cavities of ball valves allow the fine material to pack between the ball and the valve body scoring the ball and seat eventually causing the valve to cease.
|3. No Pinch Points!
Unlike a ball valve there are no tight cavities for materials to pack and jam-up the operation.
