Valves, Slides & Pipework
When designing its valve boxes Ottevanger devoted special attention to preventing internal leaks. By using the most advanced techniques the clearance between the moving parts can be kept to an absolute minimum. Moreover, the end of the valve that controls the product remains outside the material flow, as a result of which wear and therefore leaks can be prevented. The shaft of the valve rotates in dust-tight bearings to provide a trouble-free operation and this too prevents dust escaping from the transport system. The electro-pneumatic operation consists of a strong compressed-air cylinder with a solenoid valve. Inductive indicators can be fitted as position indicators.
Ottevanger's pneumatically controlled slides are fully enclosed as standard. This prevents dust escaping from the system, thus contributing to a clean, hygienic operation and improving personal safety.
