Locking valves for bulk solids

Securely lock conveying lines and containers, even with overpressure and vacuum applications.

Product flows have to be interrupted on a regular basis in everyday life. Be it for maintenance work, at the end of a batch or in the event of a malfunction. In order to securely lock pipes and containers despite the variety of materials and operating conditions, Hosokawa Solids Solutions offers different locking valves in a variety of designs. These can be operated manually or automatically. Variants for pressureless downpipes/containers, vacuum applications or overpressure are also available.

The task could be, for example: Pressure-resistant, dustproof and reliable shut-off of

  • abrasive or poorly flowing bulk solids
  • at temperatures up to 250°C
  • with high availability due to long seal service life and low-maintenance operation
  • space saving design
  • preventing any escape of product or gases to the outside


Shut-off valves for bulk solids with operating pressures above 0.5 bar comply with the Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU.

Typical examples of bulk material shut-off devices:

  • Slide gate valve
  • Rotary gate valve
  • Butterfly valve
  • Chambered airlocks
  • Segmented shut-off devices
