Dome valve for pneumatic conveying systems

Dome valve for pneumatic conveying systems

Originally patented in the late 1970′s, the Dome Valve is unique in its ability to open and close with a tight pressure seal in pneumatic conveying systems for abrasive materials.  No other valve can achieve as long of a life in harsh environments like the Dome Valve. We are the original designers and patent holders of the Dome Valve.
