This indispensible equipment - which the cement industry proclaimed the greatest contribution to cement manufacture since the invention of the rotary kiln - was first designed in 1918 as a safe way to handle pulverized fuels. The original technology has been improved over time to ofer enhanced operating life and reduced maintenance requirements.

Happy birthday Category ProductFocus Valves, Gates, & Airlocks Dome Valve The Dome Valve is used in a wide variety of applications in almost every process. It has the ability to open and close with a tight pres- sure seal in pneumatic conveying systems for abrasive materials. The closing and sealing action of the Dome Valve enables continuous re- liable operation where conventional valves fail to perform. The Dome Valve can survive decades in harsh environments. Macawber Engineering Inc., Maryville, TN 865-984-5286 www.macawber.com Second Generation Parallel Tunnel Diverter Valve The second generation of the Schenck Process PT45 diverter valve introduces new features such as adjustable alignment stops located in the housing, position indication from the tunnel itself, additional actuation options, and ex- ternal tunnel position indication. A positive food-grade rubber silicone seal at each port is designed to help prevent contamination. Additional features include 45° port-to-port ro- tation, a two-way switching capabil- ity for either dilute phase or dense phase conveying applications, cast iron or aluminum housing, tunnel, and end plates with a 316 stainless steel actuator and arm assembly, and inlet and outlet ports flanged to mate 150# ANSI flange patterns. The housing and tunnel on the alu- minum valve are hard anodized for wear resistance. To complete the unit, a pneumatic actuator provid- ing a 2-4-second actuation time be- tween ports, a four-way double sole- noid air control valve with a NEMA 4 enclosure, and a NEMA 4/4X position proof switch with 2 DPDT switch elements are included.
