The cement valve is a cross between a TESV totally enclosed valve and an FSV fabricated slide valve.
The valve has the TESV system of not having a chest seal and is fitted with an integral outlet hopper to collect any product that collects on the plate and is knocked off during normal operation.
The heavy duty slide plate is supported on sealed flanged rollers, offering no resistance to the travel of the plate.
For frequent operation such as vehicle loading, the cement valve can be used for years and years with little or no maintenance.
Shown is the round unit but the valve is also available in square and from a small 150mm unit up to 700 and above.
Actuation is normally pneumatic but electric, hydraulic and manual versions are available to suit whatever power source is available on your plant.
