Diverter Valves

Ideal for handling dry bulk material in gravity flow, dilute phase or dense phase pneumatic conveying applications. Diverter valves are flow direct bulk material into 2 or more different destinations. Enge Plas’ range of diverters are designed and engineered to extend the service life of the valve and perform maintenance without taking the valve out of line.

Our valves serve many industries including chemical, cement, coal, food, frac sand, grain, minerals, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, plastics, polymer, rubber and mining.

We supply certified solutions for requirements regarding flameproof design and ATEX conformity.

Gate Valve

Gate valves are ideal for handling dry bulk material in gravity flow, dilute phase or dense phase pneumatic conveying applications. They are available in a wide variety of configurations including size and customer specific hole patterns. Enge Plas provide a solution here for you specifically engineered to handle dry bulk powders, pellets and granules.



Diverse Range

Orifice Gate
  • Handles dry bulk solids in gravity flow, dilute phase, or vacuum conveying systems with pressures up to 1 bar
  • Mechanically self cleans on opening stroke
  • Seals protected from material flow stream
Roller Gate
  • Best choice for handling dry material in gravity flow or low-pressure applications
  • Positive seal of dust and fine powders
HDPV2 Gate
  • Address higher-pressure applications up to 5 bar
  • Seals fine material in higher aeration or pressure applications
  • Patented rising blade action ensures optimal seal
  • Seals protected from blast abrasion
  • Does not pack material upon closure
TSG Gate
  • For the most demanding applications when handling heavy-duty abrasive materials such as sand, gravel, coal, and whole grains in gravity flow applications where positive material shut-off and dust tight sealing is required
Titan Pressure Gate Valve
  • Address higher-pressure applications up to 6.8 bar and higher temperatures up to 350°C, for highly abrasive applications and requires minimal maintenance over the life of the valve
  • Mounting boss for the addition of an optional proximity switch
Clear Action Gate
  • For use in gravity flow or pneumatic conveying systems up to 1 bar
  • Self-cleaning action on closure minimizes material build-up
  • Positive seal across the valve and to atmosphere
  • No internal cavities for material to build up
Aggregate Gate
  • For demanding applications handling material such as sand, gravel, whole grains, and coal
  • Narrow profile, choice of actuators, and custom rectangular sizes make this slide gate adaptable to most existing installation
  • Replaceable abrasion resistant liners deflect material away from support rollers
  • Hardened steel rollers with grease fittings
  • Material displacement pocket minimizes wedging of material as blade closes
Rounded Blade Gate
  • For the most demanding applications when handling heavy-duty abrasive materials in gravity flow where positive material shut-off and dust-tight sealing is required
  • Design allows for rapid actuation to quickly start and stop material flow and makes it a good choice for applications that require metering
Maintenance Gate
  • Designed to shut off material from a hopper or silo when maintenance of downstream equipment is required
  • In open position, it positively seals conveying air and material to atmosphere
  • Hand crank gearing is designed to close through material in case of an upset condition
Hand Slide Orifice Gate
  • To handle dry bulk solids in gravity flow conveying
  • Full flow orifice provides unrestricted conveying of material with no disk or ledges to impede flow or cause material bridging
Quick Clean Orifice Gate
  • Clean out of place” gate valve designed for frequent cleaning
  • Features a full-port opening and self-cleaning design
  • Can be disassembled and assembled in minutes without tools
  • Carries a USDA Dairy Standard Accepted rating and is an excellent choice for sanitary applications

  • Unlike common knife gates and butterfly valves, our gate valves are specifically engineered to handle dry bulk powders, pellets, and granules.
  • Knife gates rely on soft elastomeric seals which erode or tear away in service.
  • Butterfly valves incorporate discs that cause significant flow restrictions, thus impacting system performance and throughput.
  • Both designs promote wedging and packing of materials, preventing positive air and material shut off.
  • Our gate valves eliminate design flaws associated with knife gates and butterfly valves.
  • Serviceable while in-line
  • Wear compensating hard polymer seals
  • No pinch points or exposed moving parts for safe operation
  • Open / closed or volume metering of material

Loading Spout

Loading Spouts provide an efficient way to load bulk material into vessels. Vessels can be trucks, railcars, tank vehicles, ships, barges, and stockpiling. They are also used to filling bags, drums and flexible bulk containers. Materials include petrochemical powders, plastic granules, wood pellets, grains, cement, sand or gravel.

Our loading spouts apply in normal, abrasive, corrosive, combustible and hazardous environments. They can capture fugitive dust and prevent material waste. This ensures plant and environmental safety, with low maintenance and service expenses.

Enge Plas offers a complete line of versatile loading systems for any applications. We supply retractable loading spouts attached to the bottom of a silo/hopper. Or located at the end of an air conveying system. Or to the dust collecting filter system or the loading spout positioner. Useful accessories include spout filtration systems, spout positioners and aeration systems.
