cast iron airlock rotary valve with round flange

Instant, tangible results AND long-term results.

It’s not often that you can have both.

That’s why we’re excited about our MD Series. These material metering valves offer immediate operating efficiency advantages, as well as long-term production and maintenance savings.

Constructed with an 8-vane rotary valve that ensures proper pressure sealing at the inlet and outlet flange, MD rotary feeders reduce compressed air loss by up to 28 CFM per year. If you do the math—based on an industry average cost of $1,200 per 10 CFM of compressed air per year—it amounts to savings of up to $3,600 per year.

The MD Series can also immediately contribute additional process efficiency savings with an available variable frequency drive that modulates drive speed and reduces electricity consumption based on the fluctuating power requirements of the MD Series feeder valve system.

As for the long-term production and maintenance savings, ACS designed the MD Series to reduce the total lifecycle maintenance requirements. The MD Series valve housings are cast in North America to ensure superior strength in the composition and solidification of the housing’s metallurgy. The housings are then CNC-machined to precise tolerances; eliminating axial shaft movement, seal leakage, and shortened bearing life.

The ACS Valves MD Series further extends maintenance cycles with an outboard bearing design that removes the bearings from the path of damaging and contaminating materials, protects the bearings in high temperature applications to 750°F, while easily managing application pressure differentials up to 15 PSIG.
