Solutions to Your Material Handling Problems
Drop-Through Rotary Valves with square inlet or with a circular inlet consist of a tubular cast iron or stainless steel casing, a horizontally mounted rotor with a certain number of V-shaped cross section compartments, a drive unit and a casing cover opposite the drive end.
Rotary Valves have been developed for maximum versatility in application. They are suitable for controlled discharging and feeding of powdery or granular materials from silos, hoppers, pneumatic conveying systems, bag filter houses, or cyclones.
