Series 37 Valve is for use in pneumatic conveying of dry materials in bulk, wherever the flow of product must change from one line to another.
Smoot Companyeries 37 Valve is for use in pneumatic conveying of dry materials in bulk, wherever the flow of product must change from one line to another.
The valve is an adaptation of the hose station principle to an automatically-operated valve, by use of a sealing method.
Flow is straight through connecting lines, avoiding abrasive wear that occurs in most valve designs, at the point where the direction of material is abruptly changed. The flexible metal or rubber hose attached to the inlet port is repositioned to effect a smooth change of direction and can be replaced readily when wear does occur; and if the product is highly abrasive, abrasion-resistant hose can be used.
The valves are bi-directional and will divert or converge product in both pressure and vacuum systems. The valve is built to handle pellets, powders, granules - and product that can be conveyed pneumatically. It can be used in any position - directly mounted by use of mounting holes, or indirectly through support of the conveying line it connects with.
Two maximum pressure designs are offered. One is for dilute phase conveying systems and is good for pressures to 15 psig+. The 2nd is for dense phase systems and is good for pressures to 100psig+.
A HiTemp option for the dilute phase valve only is also available. The standard dilute phase valve will withstand maximum temperatures to 185 degrees F continuous (200 degrees F intermittent) but metal hoses must be used. Dilute phase valves with the HiTemp option will withstand product temperatures to 400 degrees F continuous (450 degrees F intermittent) and metal hoses must be used.
There is no limit to the vacuum at which the valve will operate successfully.
The valve is manufactured standard in carbon steel and is also offered in stainless steel for food service. It can be modified to an explosion-proof design.
