New from Vortex Valves, the Quantum Series Orifice Gate valves are designed to handle dry bulk solids in gravity flow, dilute phase, or vacuum conveying up to 15 psig (1 bar), depending on size and modifications.

Offered as an improvement over the company’s original Orifice Gate, the valves feature a full-flange, weather-resistant design with improved sealing performance, higher durability, easier maintenance, and fewer replacement parts.

Sizes for the Vortex Quantum Series Orifice Gate range from two inches to 14 inches (50 mm to 350 mm).

The Quantum Orifice Gate’s blade and seal design allows the valve to “self-clean” on the opening stroke, which prevents material from packing on the valve’s internal seals.

Well-suited for many dry material handling applications, the Quantum Series can be applied to control, shutoff, or meter material flow. Made using precision laser cutting and bending technology, the gates have a narrow profile and lightweight construction, allowing for easy installation.

Additionally, the Quantum Series offers a wide variety of modifications to accommodate a range of temperatures, corrosive, humid, and hazardous environments.
