Clyde Dome Valve - The Original and World's Best Material Handling Valve.
Dome Valves are currently installed in over 10,000 applications worldwide. Simple in design and low in maintenance, this high performance valve is used in a wide range of industries. In action the Clyde Dome Valve is a pressure tight compressed air operated valve, capable of returning over one million maintenance-free cycles, even in abrasive, hazardous or toxic applications. The fast-closing cut-off valve incorporates a unique inflatable sealing mechanism, and this provides the pressure tight seal against the dome surface, when in the closed position. ATEX compliant.
Full Bore Material Flow
Totally unrestricted full bore material flow is assured through the unique design of the 'dome' assembly. A mere quarter turn is sufficient to move from the fully closed to the fully open position. This action positions the dome completely clear of the material flow path.
From Fine Abrasive Powders to Cohesive Materials
User options extend to the choice of 'Dome', both in terms of raw material and any surface coatings required. The Dome is usually produced from Cast Iron, S G Iron or Stainless Steel, but other materials and designs will be considered on application.
From Foodstuffs to High Temperature Ash
Several inflatable seals are available, depending upon the application. The choice includes a white food quality seal as well as those specially formulated for high temperature or other hostile applications
Moving and Static Column Cut Off
All Dome Valves are capable of handling fine grain materials and hard abrasive products. Vane Actuator Models will cut through static columns of material up to 2mm particle size. To cut through moving columns of powders, pastes and granular products similar to coal above 2mm, Cylinder Actuator models are used.
