The FLSmidth Rotary Cut-Off Valve is designed for high operating efficiency and long life. Constructed of rugged cast iron, the valve is precisely machined to maintain alignment and assure smooth rotor operation. Standard design to operate with material temperatures up to 400° F (93° C).
Rugged cast iron construction machined for close tolerance.
Unique rotor design provides double seal, at top and bottom, in the closed position for positive cut-off.
The standard FLSmidth slide gate employs a grip handle for manual operation of the gate. Good for applications up to 400° F (205° C).
The body of the 7-inch (175 mm) and 10 x 16 inch (250 x 400 mm) units is a twopiece cast iron assembly. The 10-inch (250 mm) unit is fabricated steel. A gasket at the gate aperture maintains a seal. The upper body over-laps the perimeter of the gate which is supported by lugs on the lower wall. This gives the unit a "self-cleaning" feature with no ledges or pockets to trap dust.
The gate is constructed of sturdy plate steel.
The FLSmidth Cut-Off Slide Gate is available for four different modes of operation to meet specific control situations:
- hand wheel operated
- chain wheel operated
- electric motor operated
- air cylinder operated
Three different material combinations are available for greater economy in selection and for specific handling requirements.
- Class #40 cast iron body with carbon steel gate
- Cast #319 aluminum body with #304 stainless steel gate
- Complete #304 stainless steel body and gate
The body is solid, cast metal, two-piece bolted construction for ease of servicing. Machined for close fit. Integral cast shelf relief cuts provide a self-cleaning feature permitting smoother slide-through and support for the gate across the entire plane of travel.
The hand wheel and chain wheel operated units use wheel mounted externally of the body valve and supports.
For motor operation, a one-third (1/3) HP, 25 rpm, TENV right angle gearmotor with a unibrake is mounted on the supports. Gearmotors are 230/460 Volt, 60 Hz AC.
For air cylinder operation, the cylinder complete with slide valve and solenoids for 120 V, 60 Hz AC electrical supply is similarly mounted.
