MADE IN THE USA. +1.616.738.9000 | ENSIGNEQ.COM Category ProductFocus Valves, Gates, & Airlocks Stainless Steel Butterfly Valve The Posi-flate butterfly valve with a highly polished 316 stainless steel housing and disc is suitable for many applications, such as food, chemical, and phar- maceutical. The inflatable seat design of the butterfly valve provides a better seal by utilizing air pressure to expand the seat against the disc, providing more sealing area and an even pressure distribution against the disc every time. The seat automatically compensates for wear when it inflates against the disc, extending valve life. Because the Posi-flate disc only makes casual contact with the seat during opening and closing, torque requirements are substan- tially lower. This ease of movement also allows the disc to come to a perfect 90-degree position every time. Additionally, the smooth profile of the disc helps material flow easier and reduces build-up. The stainless steel butterfly valve is available in sizes of 2 to 20 in. Posi-flate, St. Paul, MN 651-484-5800 www.posiflate.com Abrasion-resistant Two-Way Diverter Valve Engineered for precise operation and long life, FLSmidth's rugged SK V2 two-way diverter/converger valve is suited for abrasive materials such as cement, limestone, bentonite, fly ash, copper concentrate, barite, and other pulverized or granular materials. The SK V2 valve is compatible in dilute-, two-phase, or dense-phase applica- tions. The large access port presents easy access for maintenance and uses a hinged panel for improved safety. It is versatile and can be re- purposed from right-hand to left-hand on site, saving valuable maintenance hours. The valve uses direct mount actuators - electric, air, or manual operation - for easy connections to controls and wiring. Minimal adjust- ments are required, reducing instal- lation hours and saving money. No linkages or guards are needed for this valve, resulting in safer operation and less risk for maintenance staff.

The product contact surfaces of the airlock are manu- factured in 316 stainless steel and polished to a 150-grit finish, ensur- ing that there are no lodgment points allowing the product to flow smoothly. Furthermore, the airlock is equipped with a slide rail mecha- nism, allowing for the quick and easy removal of the rotor from the airlock body. This addition reduces the amount of downtime and the number of man hours required for the cleaning and maintenance of the rotor and airlock internals.
