Low Profile VIL Slide Valves may be fitted beneath hopper, bin or silo outlets, on inlet and outlet spouts of mechanical conveyors, as well as above the inlet of telescopic loading spouts.
The wide use of WAM’s special SINT® engineering polymer ensures the highest degree of abrasion resistance as well as no downtime for seal adjustment.
The special geometry of Low Profile VIL Slide Valves and the various options in blade design enable their application in virtually all industries including food processing.
Due to their special design and to the engineering materials used, they represent a particularly economic yet most efficient solution in all product processing applications where contamination and material pollution are an issue.
For the food industry a version with stainless steel blade and frame, as well as food-grade seal is available.
