Carbon steel was used to construct both the valve body and material contact so that if metal flakes are to contaminate in-line, the system’s metal detection system can recognize the alloy. Aluminum or stainless steel would have gone undetected.
The gates were sourced for installation in a brand-new distilling facility. All valves inside the facility were supplied by Vortex. While many companies bid for the contract to supply this facility, the customer selected Vortex because they were impressed by the Roller Gate’s customization, durability, and ease of maintenance. The gates have been installed for one year, problem-free.Click here for more information about Vortex Roller GatesClick here for related news and articles about Roller Gates
