DescriptionThe function of the RULA Flow Control Valve is to provide a controlled material discharge for silo and bin discharge spouts. The material flow is controlled by a V or Bell shape cut out on the rotating drum. The RULA Flow Control Valve is normally used in conjunction with the RULA Knife Gate Valve upstream for the isolation of the discharge system.
Types of actuationThe valve is pneumatically actuated, electric motor actuated or hand operated
Design FeaturesFully adjustable to regulate the flow of material Aeration chamber incorporated into the design to improve material flow A relatively simple and very robust design with minimal movable parts Externally mounted bearings and seals to avoid ingress of material Valve parts exposed to the material flow are wear resistant / hard chromed and hard faced An adjustable mechanical stop and Proximity switches (for Open / Close limits) Fitted with a Positioner for accurate flow control Fitted with a Potentiometer for electronic feedback to downstream applications
Material SpecificationsMain Valve Body: SANS 50025 Grade S 275 JR Drum: SANS 50025 Grade S 275 JR, Hard chromed and hard faced Seal Clamping Plate: 6mm thick VRN 400 wear resistant material or similar
SizesValves are made to suit any size and shape to fit your plant requirements. The sizes range from 150 x 150 to 500 x 500 Drilling arrangements can be adapted to suit existing plant equipment
Operating & MaintenanceThe valves are operator and maintenance friendly A complete Operating & Maintenance manual is available Spares are freely available and valves can also be fully refurbished
