Line process efficiency is the primary goal of achievement for each of our designs we execute here at Roto-Disc. We work hard to establish dependable valve designs that work within the recommended temperature ranges for each and work to withstand the test and wear of time.
Not everyone is aware that we offer competitive valve designs that impact the market, so in today’s blog, we’ll introduce one by discussing our heavy-duty spherical valve design and its impact on processing.
What is a Heavy-Duty Spherical Valve?
The Roto-Disc-designed heavy-duty spherical valve can handle nearly anything run through a process line: sticky, gummy, abrasive substances, powders, pellets, granules, chips, etc.
The Roto heavy-duty spherical valve is made from various metal styles, including stainless steel, carbon steel, thin-dense chrome, tungsten carbide, and more. It is also made from a few nonmetals, such as reinforced PTFE.
This unique combination of materials allows the valve to function optimally with little risk of interference in function from the product.
How Does It Work?
The heavy-duty spherical valve is designed to withstand a temperature range of 40 degrees Fahrenheit to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Our product is highly adaptable to all textures of processed goods and also can withstand long-term manufacturing processes. What helps a lot with this is the design of the heavy-duty spherical valve.
The design consists of a rounded seat that interacts with the product moving through the valve’s inlet in a circular motion to assist with cutting and moving it along. The efficient design prevents snagging, tearing, clogging, and other intrusions while the process line moves the product.
Where Can I Find One?
Roto-Disc designs and executes the building of these valves. Our in-house engineers are world-class, and they work tirelessly to ensure that each design executed is designed to withstand the test of time and temperature.
