Rotary airlock valves

June 1, 2011


Designed for sanitary applications, ACS Quick-Clean rotary airlock valves enable full validation access to the rotor and all internal surfaces of the housing without disassembly of the endplate. The valves have stainless steel housings that are CNC-machined to precise tolerances and internal surfaces polished to a No. 4 finish. They are available in 304 or 316 stainless steel, in sizes from 6 to 16 in., with pressure differentials up to 15 psig, and temperature tolerance up to 500ºF. Rotor configurations include closed-end, metering, shallow-pocket, Teflon-coated and adjustable-tip. Adjustable rotor tips are available in stainless steel, hardened steel or bronze. Interior surface coating options include hard chrome and Teflon.
