Rotary feeder valves

August 1, 2011




ACS Valves’ MD Series of rotary feeder valves provides metering valve functionality for dry processing applications. The rotary feeders are constructed with an eight-vane rotary valve that ensures proper pressure sealing at the inlet and outlet flange. The valves’ seals reduce compressed air loss by up to 28 cfm/year; a savings of up to $3,600/year based on an industry annual, with an average cost of $1,200 per 10 cfm of compressed air. The valve housings are cast and machined via CNC to precise tolerances, eliminating axial shaft movement and seal leakage while increasing bearing life.
