Bush & Wilton
Bush & Wilton offers a comprehensive line of "Taper Rotary Valves", for reliable product metering and true airlock feeding. They also provide diverter valves, butterfly valves and slide gate valves. Special features include custom materials of construction such as stainless, cast iron, cast aluminum, Hastelloy, and Monel. They also offer components for pneumatic conveying pipelines.
Designed for use in gravity vacuum and pressure conveying systems, Bush & Wilton Rotary Valves are suitable for metering a wide range of dry solids, granular, pelleted and powdered materials from the outlets of silos, hoppers, cyclones, mixers and weighers. We offer a choice between heavy duty parallel rotor feeders and a tapered rotor series suitable for lower differential pressures.
There are six series of Slide Valve in our portfolio, ranging from manual economy models for gravity applications to pneumatically operated dust and gas tight constructions. All types are designed for superior performance without jamming or loss of sealing characteristics. We can tailor designs to suit individual needs, always with product protection and operating reliability in mind.
Our Diverter Valve range comprises a wide variety of construction options, actuations and applications. Utilising sealed flap, rotary plug, slidegate or pinch valve methods in cast and fabricated bodies, a diversity of powdered and granular products can be handled in gravity, pressure and vacuum driven environments. The Box Slider variant is of particular interest where a minimum of product degradation and component wear is critical.
Both our inline Pinch Valves offer a smooth internal profile suitable for powders, granules, slurries, liquids and gases in gravity, pressure and vacuum conveying ducts and pipelines. They are easily installed and require minimal maintenance. The hand operated anvil type closes a reinforced rubber sleeve by pinching it, while compressed air or suitable fluid accomplishes a bubble tight seal on a heavy duty elastomer sleeve in the pneumatic version.
To cope with a whole list of abrasive materials such as sand, cement, quarry dust, granite dust, sinter dust, slag, coal and myriad, which cause extra wear on pipe-bends of conventional material, we provide a range of Ni-Hard castings, standard and special radius plain bends with replaceable wear-back plates and 'saddle-back' in-service repair attachments for plain bends and 'T' and 'Y' branches. Available with plain or flanged ends, Bush & Wilton Ni-Hard bends are essential for the efficient conveying of abrasive materials.
Our selves carry comprehensive reserves of every valve described in this brochure. We feel confident that almost any requirement of the materials handling industry can be met in the shortest possible time. Whatever the requirement, our agents throughout the world have access to these stocks, as well as Bush & Wilton's specialist engineering experience, promising you reliable advice and prompt delivery.
