Rotary Airlock Valve
The prime function of a rotary airlock (rotary valves) is to regulate the flow from one chamber to another while maintaining a good airlock condition. The product is mainly in dry powder or granular form.
In the dust filtration field a good airlock is essential on cyclone and bag filter applications in order that the manufacturers quoted high dust collection efficiencies can be maintained. Airlocks are also important in the pneumatic conveying industry, where product is regulated into a pressure or vacuum conveying line while minimising air leakage.
