High-end features, meet cast-iron valves

Just because your bulk materials handling process is a general application, doesn’t mean the bells and whistles of a specialty application valves are off the table for you.

After all, efficiency and productivity are just as important to you as it is for those who process food ingredients.

That’s why we built a line of cast iron rotary airlock valves to provide the same primary process optimization benefits typically associated with high-end valve designs.

These cast iron rotary airlock valves features the ACS RotorRail™ which 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.

When compared to bolt-together housing designs, a rotary airlock valve with RotorRails reduces rotor service cycle times by 78 percent. The RotorRail feature on these cast iron valves also ensures accurate rotor re-alignment during re-assembly, thus eliminating axial shaft movement; bearing wear and seal leakage; and premature, uneven rotor vane wear.
