Constructed of stainless steel, the vac- uum receiver features a rugged, clamp- together design that facilitates rapid, tool-free disassembly for filter cleaning and maintenance. The modular design permits the addition of cylinder segments for increased holding volume. The flap-type dump valve is actuated by a pneumatic cylinder via manual contact closure, or program- mable controls based on weight gain, elapsed time, or other user-defined parameters. Unlike conventional filter receivers that employ multiple small filter elements, this unit employs a single, large diameter filter cartridge facilitating rapid filter changes, and automatic reverse pulse jet cleaning of the filter element to maintain conveying efficiency during operation. Flexicon Corp., Bethlehem, PA 888-353-9426 www.flexicon.com Rounded Blade Gate Booth 3645 - The newest addition to the Titan Series line of valves, the RBG (rounded blade gate) is an ideal solution for handling abrasive materials and for applications that may require metering. The rapid actuation of the blade can quickly start and stop the flow of material, which makes it ideal for controlling flow rates. The RBG can be equipped with a wide variety of actuation choices including pneumatic, electric and hydraulic. Designed to meet the most demanding applications when handling highly abra- sive materials such as minerals, frac sand, fly ash, and whole grains, the RBG handles dry material in gravity flow applica- tions where positive material shut-off and dust-tight sealing are required. The maintenance-friendly design of the gate features a replaceable bonnet seal while the valve is in-line reducing operating downtime.
