The newly redesigned slide valve from Lorenz offers many improved features:
The slide gate features 3/8” thick top & bottom flanges for improved sealing capability by achieving increased pressure on the seals with greater torque on the plates. This design allows the slide gate to be air-purged, providing a fully pressurized body.The new design is a “cleaner gate” with no side ledges to collect material. Fewer fasteners make it simpler to maintain and the lighter design means it is easier to handle and install. The shorter design saves space in tight quarters.
