United Conveyor Corporation Introduces the Enhanced 18” Swing Disc Valve  

UCC 18” Swing Disc Valve Engineered for Transfer Hopper Isolation on Filter/Separators in Fly Ash, Bed Ash, Bottom Ash and Economizer Ash Systems  


Waukegan, IL – United Conveyor Corporation (UCC), a global leader in ash handling and dry sorbent injection, introduced the enhanced 18” Swing Disc Valve designed for transfer hopper isolation on Filter/Separators in vacuum and pressure systems.       

The enhanced 18” Swing Disc Valve has a large throat diameter to reduce bridging and promote material flow while reducing transfer hopper cycle time.  The valve utilizes proven UCC swing disc technology, providing 10 times the closing force compared to slide gates. Dual access ports allow for easy maintenance of the seat and disc without removing the valve from service.     

“The enhanced 18” Swing Disc offers several key benefits including dual access ports to make it very easy for maintenance to be performed.  This reduces labor costs for the plant.” states Kevin McDonough, Director –Sales, Americas.  “This valve also has new internal components such as a removable bearing and seal cartridge, and chain tether to further reduce maintenance and extend its service life.”
