Founded in 1977, Vortex specializes in the design and manufacture of components for the transport and flow control of dry bulk solids. Vortex’s technical focus is in the development of innovative technologies to improve solids process efficiency, ensure dust-free environments, and establish long-term reliability.

Throughout the world, more than 20,000 companies – such as Dow Chemical, Nestle, DuPont, Sabic, Jacobs Engineering, BASF, Kraft Foods, P&G, PepsiCo, Fluor, Vale, Solvay, Rio Tinto, ADM, Cargill, Bunge, and InBev – rely on Vortex’s innovative slide gates, diverters, iris valves, and loading solutions to improve process efficiency.

Vortex offers a wide range of solids handling components that suits most materials and applications. Selecting the right piece of equipment is critical to the success of any dry bulk material handling system. Misapplied components and deficient designs add unexpected costs and inefficiencies in the process. The characteristics of dry bulk solids are endless, so there is no all encompassing solution for every application.

This is why Vortex offers the world a wide range of valve and loading solutions for handling nearly any type of dry solids, from fine powders to heavy ore. Vortex’s design philosophy is to develop products that compensate for wear, require minimal spare parts, provide in-line maintenance, and maintain a longer service life than market alternatives.
