The Hopper Refill MagnaValve eliminates the need for an air cylinder and lowers maintenance costs.
Hopper Refill MagnaValves are normally-closed magnetic valves typically used to replenish shot hoppers with cast steel shot or cut wire shot. The valve construction includes a permanent magnet for normally-closed operation and an electromagnet to activate shot flow. By applying power to the electromagnet, a full-flow condition may be achieved. When power is off, the valve will hold shot due to the permanent magnet.
The maintenance free Hopper Refill MagnaValve eliminates the need for a high maintenance air cylinder operated dipper/butterfly/n.c. pinch valves.
There are four sizes of valve available in both 110VAC and 24VDC all connected by standard NTP threads.
