CLEVELAND, OH – June 6, 2013 – Aerodyne®, a specialist in solving dry material handling issues, offers the GatorGate™ Double Dump Valve. The GatorGate can operate in applications where rotary valves fail. With the use of tandem gates, this material handling valve discharges materials while maintaining a positive airlock seal. The upper gate opens, allowing chunky, fibrous, or abrasive material to drop onto the closed lower gate. The upper gate then re-closes to maintain the airlock seal. The lower gate opens and discharges the material from the system. Unlike competing dump valves, the GatorGate utilizes a unique cam-operated drive mechanism. As the specially designed cam rotates, it actuates the upper and lower flap gates in sequence for a highly reliable and consistent airlock seal.
Depending on the application requirements, the GatorGate can be equipped with a motor driven cam, pneumatic air cylinders, or pneumatic diaphragm actuators to provide the lock-hopper sequence. These rotary free functions provide low maintenance operation in dust collection or gravity feed hoppers. The GatorGate is comprised of heavy duty carbon steel with a stainless steel design available upon request. This Double Dump has quick removing doors for easy clean out and outboard bearings that enable easy maintenance. In addition, there are High Temperature options and High Pressure units available.
