The Meyer Knife Gate Valve is designed for positive shut off of all free flowing bulk material. It can be used in feeding, dust collector hoppers, silos or other conveying equipment. The valve’s open throat is designed to assure there is no clogging of bulk material; the robust design can handle dust to 1/4″ coarse grain granulated material. Standard operator is a manual hand wheel with the option of a pneumatic operator.
