The SD Series of rotary valves is designed to provide increased bulk material throughput efficiency in feeding and metering applications. The construction provides a larger pocket area between the vanes of the rotor, enabling greater pocket-fill capacity. Calculated at 100% pocket-fill capacity, the valves can move over 5% more cubic feet per revolution (CFR) of bulk material than a comparable 8-vane rotary valve. The valve housings are cast to ensure strength in the composition and solidification of the housing’s metallurgy, and to eliminate dimples, crevices and pits on the housing’s product contact areas and other surfaces. The valves are available in cast iron, or 304 or 316 stainless steel; in 4 square-flange sizes from 6 to 12 inches; and 4 heights from 10 inches to 18 inches. They can perform in temperature applications up to 250ºF.
