Swing Disc - Vent Valve

UCC 2 ½” vent valves were designed for on/off service in vessel venting applications on pneumatic conveying systems. The design is rugged, maneuverable, clean operating and easy to maintain. This valve has a replaceable tungsten carbide disc and seat which improves wear resistance and reduces the operating costs. The access covers allow the valve to be adjusted and maintained without removing it from the vent line. UCC 2 ½” vent valve can be shipped pre-piped and fully assembled with an air cylinder and a variety of limit switches and solenoid valves which reduces field assembly and installation costs.

  • Tungsten Carbide Disc and Seat – Improved wear resistance which reduces maintenance costs.
  • Pivot Ball Disc and Lever Arrangement – Disc is spring mounted to pivot ball which allows self adjustment for better sealing.
  • Front and Rear Access Covers – Allows adjustments and maintenance to be performed in place.
  • Air Cylinder Mounting – The valve can be ordered in left or right hand air cylinder mounting arraignments.
  • Self Lubricating Bearings – Reduces maintenance costs.
  • Valves are shipped pre-piped and fully assembled – Reduced installation costs
  • Limit Switches – Roller lever type and proximity are available
  • Solenoids – Normally closed or open, voltage, manual operators, temperature rating and manufacturer
  • Pre-piping – Brass fittings with rubber hose, Swagelok stainless steel fittings and Swagelok stainless steel hoses, Swagelok stainless steel fittings and Swagelok rubber hoses

NUVA FEEDER Dilute Phase Pressure System

The NUVA FEEDER® pressure system is optimal where conveying capacity requirements exceed the limits of a vacuum system. 

MultiDAC Dense Phase Pressure System

The MultiDAC™ system is intended primarily for short conveying distances.  Learn more about our MultiDAC Pressure System.


DEPAC Dense Phase Pressure System

DEPAC® is a dense phase system for conveying large quantity of material at low velocity over very long distances. 


Vacuum-Pressure Transfer System

UCC's Vacuum/Pressure Transfer systems combine the simplicity and lower headroom requirements of a vacuum system under the hoppers with the high capacity and long distance conveying capability of a positive pressure system.
