Vortex's design philosophy is to develop products that compensate for wear, require minimal spare parts, have in- line maintenance capabilities, and provide a longer service life than market alternatives. Throughout the world, over 15,000 companies in the minerals, chemical, food, plastic, grain, and power industries rely on Vortex's innovative slide gates, diverters, and loading solutions to improve process efficiency. World's Leading Expert in Handling Dry Bulk Solids Vortex clients can be assured they are getting the best solutions available on the market. By listening to their needs and relying on Vortex's in-depth knowledge of dry solids, Vortex engineers can develop the right solution to meet the most demanding applications. The result is a product that will out-perform and out-last typical components found on the market today. Vortex's knowledge of dry bulk solid processing is unprecedented. For almost 40 years, Vortex has delivered innovative solutions to a wide range of industries, handling thousands of dry bulk solids. Quality Assurance and Customer Service Quality assurance in manufacturing is the most important prerequisite for the optimal performance of Vortex products in the field. Vortex's client-focused quality management system is registered to ISO 9001:2008 and covers every aspect of product quality and technical services, from initial inquiry to product performance. With a customer service network that covers over 40 countries, Vortex can deliver global solutions at a local level. Specialists are available to contact at any time and can be quickly on site. Innovative Products for Process Improvement Vortex offers a wide range of solids handling components that suits most materials and applications. Selecting the right piece of equipment is critical to the success of any dry bulk material handling system. Misapplied and design deficient components add unexpected costs and inefficiencies in process. The characteristics of dry bulk solids are endless, so there is no all- encompassing solution for every application. This is why Vortex offers the world's widest range of valves and loading solutions for handling nearly any type of dry solids, from fine powders to heavy ore. TITAN SERIES Gates & Diverters for Heavy- Duty Applications Vortex Titan Series slide gates and diverters are engineered for heavy-duty material handling applications. These applications include materials that pose excessive abrasion or wear issues, situations that call for extremely large sized valves or diverters, and conditions that warrant additional considerations that will allow these valves to be as successful as possible in extremely harsh environments. Some of the materials handled with Vortex Titan valves include, but not limited to: rock, sand, limestone, coal, gravel, alumina, bauxite, cement, clinker, fly ash, glass cullet, lime, metal powders, and potash. LOADING SOLUTIONS Dustless Loading Spouts and Equipment Loading Solutions offer a complete line of telescopic loading chute systems for the loading process. Vortex also custom engineers any loading spout system to meet the most demanding loadout application requirements, including corrosive or hazardous materials, long distances, low and high temperatures, etc. Vortex fully assembles, factory tests and packages every loading spout system before shipping it to a facility to provide ease of installation and to ensure optimal performance once in use. Vortex spouts include a 10-year warranty on any of its cables that breaks due to friction. Some of the materials handled with Vortex Loading Solutions include, but not limited to: sand, gravel, coal, petrochemical powders, and cement. Vortex spouts can be used in open, semi-enclosed and closed vessels: trucks, railroad cars, tankers, ships, barges, and open-stockpiling. ENGINEERED SOLUTIONS Solids & Bulk Handling Components Built for Application Engineered Solutions for handling dry bulk material have always been a part of Vortex. Their application engineers listen to the customer's needs and match the right valve to the application parameters. Material characteristics, environment, and valve requirements all must be considered to properly modify the valve to fit the application. Because the combinations are nearly endless, a commodity valve or off the shelf valve will not be enough. Vortex offers literally millions of variations of slide gates and diverter valves to meet almost any dry bulk processing application. Vortex can sometimes take a standard valve and make some minor modifications to fit the customer's application. Other times the only thing left standard on the valve is the famous black and silver Vortex sticker.
