Cost effective when installed in areas in which there is severe buildup as a result of high moisture content in the material. These systems consist of custom-fit rubber liners that inflate and deflate with low-pressure air supplied through a user friendly Valley Rubber control box and low-pressure plant air. The timed action keeps the liners clean and the chute free from buildup. These systems provide extensive periods of maintenance-free service in areas which were previously high maintenance.
Inflatable Rubber Liners
Inflatable Rubber Liners are used primarily to keep sticky material from building up on chute walls. The are very effective keeping chutes from plugging. The rubber in the video is 2 inches thick. The liners are custom built to fit many different applications.
Inflatable Liner Testing
In this video we’re testing the rubber to steel bond. Our standard high-quality manufacturing procedures were followed. The liner is 24″ x 24″ with 3″ thick rubber. Low pressure air was used to inflate the thick rubber. Normal testing procedures were followed: 15 psi for 25 seconds, every 25 seconds for 24 hours. But then “normal” testing was abandoned… Watch the video to see.
