Some operations of tumbling barrel type mixers require that the vessel be isolated during treatment of the charge. The present paper describes a valve designed and constructed for such a purpose. The valve is attached co-axially to and rotates with the vessel, is capable of containing gas or liquid pressures of 20,000 psi, and is operated by instrument air applied through a slip joint.
