Multi Way Rotary Tube Selector Valves

Multi Way Rotary Tube Selector Valves

Pneumatic multi-port rotary tube selector valves divert pressurised conveying lines from one line, up to a maximum of sixteen lines. Flow can also be converged from multiple lines into one line. The Rotary Tube Selector Valve is often used to replace a series of two-way valves, thereby simplifying the system, and reducing maintenance.

Demountable Rotary Magnets

Demountable Rotary Magnets

Rotary magnets are designed to remove ferrous particles from product flows that tend to clog and bridge in stationary magnetic grates. The unit rotates a number of powerful magnetic tubes while the product passes through. The magnetic action attracts and holds the unwanted ferrous particles, and the rotary action prevents the product from packing the process stream. The rotary action also breaks apart lumps and cohesive materials.

Demountable Rotary Valve - Rotor Detection System

Demountable Rotary Valve - Rotor Detection System

The use of plastic rotors in GEA Nu-Con demountable rotary valves has proved to be a sound solution for eliminating rotary valve scraping, which is a possibility with full stainless steel construction. However, plastic rotors are not suitable for all duties. For example, abrasive or high temperature products require stainless steel rotors to be used. For those applications that require abrasive or high temperatures (and with close tolerances), GEA Nu-Con has developed a special monitoring device to manage the potential risk of rotor scraping.

Gravity Diverter Valve

Gravity Diverter Valve

Two-way, demountable gravity diverter valves are ideal for system installations that require frequent cleaning with minimum downtime. Design allows fast, tool-free disassembly in installed location and easy access to all product-contact surfaces. Gravity fed material is diverted to either of two outlets by a rotating blade that swings through 120° to fully close off the unused port. Material flow through the valve is unrestricted with no ledges or dead spots. Shaft seals are available in a range of options - gland, air purged gland, "U" or air-purged "U" seals. Out board, lubricated, sealed bearings are maintenance free for the life of the bearings.
