Rotary valves are important components of pneumatic conveying, bulk solids handling and metering systems. The rotary airlock is also known as the rotary airlock, rotary feeder, or airlock feed. The main function of a rotary valve is to control the flow of bulk solids from silo, mixer, cyclone or hopper under conditions of gravity, pressure and vacuum. The airlocks can operate on both pressure and vacuum applications.
A wide range of rotary valves are available for different process conditions and physical properties of transferred bulk solids. Abrasive materials, high temperature powders, food products, large size granules can be transferred by selecting the appropriate rotary valve models.
