Blow-through feeder/airlock

June 8, 2012

FE0612dpt3_inbody.jpgACS Valves’ BT Series blow-through feeder/airlock ensures bulk density and throughput of hard-to-convey materials such as fine powders and flakes that, in high-pressure pneumatic conveying applications, can easily over-aerate and reduce material feed efficiency. The equipment decreases excess aeration of the material during conveying with an integrated vent port on the return side of the valve housing that automatically vents air leakage. The BT Series 8-vane rotary valve design reduces air leakage and maximizes the flow path of air through the rotor pocket, improving material pocket release. Housings are available in cast iron or 304 or 316 SS in either 8- or 10-in. round flange sizes.
