The Rotolok Group test plant
The Rotolok Group Test Plant is located at our readily accessible Surrey facility and includes models from our extensive portfolio of equipment and systems which are supplied, manufactured and installed by Rotolok, Solitec and Blo-Tech. The setup allows for a flexible approach to satisfy a wide range of bulk powder handling applications and to develop and trial new innovations.
Here at Rotolok, we constantly strive to improve the quality of our equipment and obtain the required and industry recognized certification to provide specialist airlocks. In February 2018, Rotolok gained approval and certification from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to supply Rotary Airlocks for use in the dairy, food and chemical industries in the United States.
Here at Rotolok we are always looking to add safety features while minimising the space required. An example of this is when a client came to use to help them improve their plants design while maintaining safe functionality.
Here at Rotolok we are always ready to provide bespoke, innovative equipment to match a company’s needs. One such example was the development of an elongated Rotary Valve for a leading multi-national food and drink company. This bespoke valve also incorporated a special rotor design and speed control.
Made with a Stainless Steel
body and rotor, it is capable of
handling 22m3/hour at 1100kgs/m3
At Rotolok we, like any company, are always glad to receive feedback. It’s one of the main ways a company improves. It lets us know what we can do to make a better product and it also lets us know what we’re doing right. This is the kind of feedback everyone wants to here, especially when it comes to client satisfaction.

Here at Rotolok we are determined to provide a fast, reliable turnaround on orders. Having stock valves and rotors in a range of sizes allows us to quickly assemble and deliver our standard equipment in a short time, an example of which is below.
