Rotary Airlocks explained
Rotary Airlocks are essential in many bulk conveying and feeding applications and perform a number of functions.
When a product moves from one part of a system or vessel to another, whether this be gravity-fed, under vacuum, or by pressure for filtration, it is vital to retain control over the process and Rotary Airlocks can:
• minimise pressure or air loss
• provide metering and volume control
• regulate feed rate
• act as a flame barrier.
The Rotary Airlock can increase production efficiency, decrease waste and protect product from what can often be harsh processing conditions.
