acs valve ci series rotary valvesACS Valves’ CI Series of rotary valves provides processing operations continuous performance, reduced maintenance and optimal energy efficiency in dust collection applications. The valves’ bearing design manages applications with pressure differentials up to 15psig; the outboard design protects the bearings in high-temperature applications to 750ºF and removes bearings from the path of damaging and contaminating materials. The CI Series 8-vane rotor architecture improves process energy efficiency by minimizing pressure loss throughout the system, and features a simultaneous 2-vane inlet and 2-vane outlet that maintains accurate pressure differentials, reducing compressed air requirements. The rotary valves are available in cast iron; 304 or 316 stainless steel; and sizes from 10 to 44 in. Rotor configurations include closed-end, metering, shallow-pocket, Teflon-coated and adjustable-tip. Adjustable rotor tips are available in EDPM, hardened steel, stainless steel, bronze or polyurethane. Interior surface coating options include hard chrome, tungsten and Teflon.
