The new line of cast iron rotary airlock valves is designed to provide primary process optimization benefits typically associated with high-end, specialty-application valve designs. This line features the RotorRailô that enables tool-less access to the rotor and all internal surfaces of the housing without time-consuming disassembly of the rotor or the removal from service of upstream or downstream equipment commonly associated with standard valve configurations. This reduces rotor service cycle times by 78%; and, as a result, increases total process uptime by 18% during a typical 8-hour operating shift. The housings are CNC-machined to precise tolerances. The optimal inlet/outlet seal is achieved using the standard 8-vane rotor design.
