By far the strongest Mucon powered actuated Iris valve is our Series E Iris Diaphragm Valve range It has an extremely robust construction with reliable drive elements making this the Iris Valve of choice for the most arduous of powder handling tasks.
The drive for the Iris Valve is provided by an electrically powered geared motor unit. Switches indicating open, closed and an adjustable intermediate position are fitted as standard.

Body parts are made from aluminium, with a Gunmetal Control Clamp Ring 316L Stainless steel fasteners are fitted as standard
Optional materials of construction as required
Stainless steel contact parts – Top and Bottom Clamp Rings only

For use on the outlets of Silos handling heavy bulk solids. E.g. Sand, Cement, Lime Powder etc.
Linked to weigh scale set points for ‘bagging off’ For use in controlling (not shut off) air flow ventilation ducting Use for Big Bag discharge where automatic actuation is needed
Used for In-Line applications with no leakage to atmosphere

316 stainless steel contact parts can be supplied on the Iris Valve
