CLEVELAND, Ohio – January 18, 2011 – Aerodyne, a specialist in solving dry material handling problems, announces the addition of the StopTight™ manual and pneumatic knife gate valve for dry solids, granules and powders. The StopTight knife gate valve is ideally suited for discharging dry, free-flowing materials from gravity-fed hoppers, silos, mixers, screw conveyors and chutes. This valve is also an economical and reliable way to isolate airlock valves from hoppers during routine maintenance or emergency shut-downs. A series of adjustable cam-guides support the slide plate and seal it firmly against the machined inlet seat. The cast-aluminum body and stainless-steel slide plate make this valve suitable for a wide range of materials including: chemicals, foodstuffs, and plastics. The thin profile and tapped flanges allow this valve to go where most other valves can’t.
Aerodyne’s StopTight knife gate valves are available in 8″, 10″, and 12″ sizes in manual or pneumatic operation.
