Problems with Liquid, Gas and
Dry Solids

Those working in the solids handling industry know it is typical to:

  • Find a pile of material building-up underneath a slide gate
  • See a diverter valve with a dedicated spanner
  • Discover an actuator with conspicuously large pock marks from the odd wallop (a.k.a. hammer rash)

Unfortunately, this is also the major reason why industries experience several difficulties and inconveniences. Choose and install liquid and gas handling valves in place of a properly designed valve for solids and it will soon create a myriad of problems. Therefore, it is essential to find the perfect handling valve that can seal high pressures by utilising soft seals and seats. Create the perfect design requirement and you will find your industry free from all problems.

Common Pneumatic Conveying
Problems with Dry Solids

The varying characteristics of dry solids (bulk density, flow-ability, abrasive, corrosive, particle size, shape, stickiness, hydroscopic, degradation, etc.) means that no particular slide gate or diverter design can be made to "fit" in every application. Thus, failure to select the appropriate valve can result in:

  • Inaccurate weighing and conveying inefficiencies
  • Atmospheric leakage and safety risks
  • Downtime and material loss/waste
  • Unnecessary parts inventory
  • Frequent maintenance cycles

We provide solutions to these pneumatic conveying issues. Contact us and see the complete solution we offer.

Common Pneumatic Conveying
Problems with Liquid and Gas

Unlike gases and liquids, dry solids do not dissipate when closed against a soft seat and can easily erode the valve's sealing mechanism. Blast abrasion from dry particles can also wreak havoc on any exposed parts in the material flow stream. Powders easily migrate into packing or seal glands causing eventual leakage and seising of the moving parts. Therefore, it is important to know that not because a valve can handle a liquid, it will also perform very well with dry material.
