Rotary valves explained

Rotary valves explained

Rotary valves (also known as rotary airlocks) are valves that are essential in many bulk conveying and feeding applications.

Particularly when a product moves from one type of feed process or vessel to another, such as gravity-fed, vacuum, pneumatic, filtration etc, it is vital to retain control over the transfer. This may include:

• pressure or air loss
• temperature control
• metering and volume
• flow speed
• flameproofing.

The rotary valve can increase your production efficiency and protect product from what can often be harsh manufacturing conditions.
