The new Mucon slide gate valve has 53 new patents pending claims. Features and benefits of the Mucon SD-P slide gate valve include: a robust, complete, shut-off solution that is ideal for powders, granules, and pellets; a durable self-compensating polymer seal that ensures the blade is completely dust tight, which prevents material leaking into the environment; total unobstructed full bore opening for smooth, non-jamming operation. Kemutec, Bristol, PA 215-788-8013 www.KemutecUSA.com Material Master Bulk Bag Discharging and Drum Filling System This patented Material Master bulk bag discharging system provides sealed discharge of dry bulk materials. A Sure-Seal actuated spout clamping system seals the bag discharge spout for dust-tight operation, while a Flo-Master bag massaging system and integral material delumper promote positive material flow during drum filling. A powered Flo-Lock discharge spout closure system quickly halts material flow for partial bag discharging. The drum filling system features a dust-tight actuated fill head, and can be easily retracted to allow connection to a pneumatic conveying system.
