The Slimflex is a low cost alternative to the Rotoflex, designed primarily for the needs of the IBC market. It is manufactured from mild or stainless steel laser cut rings providing a robust, yet lower duty valve. Mild steel parts are zinc coated.
The Flexible sleeve valve has proved itself over a number of years as a simple, reliable isolation or variable feed control valve on applications in the powder or air handling industries – its simplicity being its major advantage.
The basic construction is a fabric sleeve that, with each end being held firmly to a circular shape on rotation through 180°, will completely seal against the very finest of powders and limited air pressure.
Partial rotation leads to partial opening and a multitude of different types of sleeve can be accommodated, the better type of sleeves are food quality nylon, impregnated cloth. These types of sleeves are weighty, give the valve good full opening properties.
