What are the different types of rotary airlock valves?

Posted by ACS Valves on

There are so many! Our standard CI Series valve is popular with its efficient construction and plenty of customization options. But there are dozens of other options, and they depend on:

1. Your application (e.g., construction, pet food, or cannabis processing?)
2. Your material (e.g., cement, plastic, or flour?)
3. Your system (bulk material, dust collector, or pneumatic conveyor?)
4. Your desired valve type (airlock with metering, metering/feeding, or airlock?)

You could go even further down the rabbit hole and customize valves with different rotors, coatings, and accessories for maximum efficiency. The easiest approach is to contact an ACS Valves rep to discuss your options — we’ll only recommend what your process actually needs.
