A double dump valve is an excellent, cost-effective choice for discharging free-flowing material from dust collection equipment, baghouses and hoppers. As its name implies, a double dump valve has two identical chambers that alternate to collect or dispense material. It is specially designed to open only when its internal flap is sealed—thereby maintaining the pressure of your dry material handling system. For applications that require processing relatively large, fibrous or abrasive materials, a double dump valve is a reliable, durable alternative to a rotary valve or knife gate valve that may become jammed or wear out prematurely. The GatorGate double dump valve is constructed of heavy duty carbon steel and because of its simple design, the double dump valve requires little maintenance and has a lower total cost of ownership than many other valves on the market.
