New Line Of Rotary Airlock Valves May Reduce Service Cycle
ACS Valves introduces a new line of cast-iron rotary airlock valves were designed to provide to general industry the same primary process optimization benefits typically associated with high-end, specialty-application valve designs. This new line of ACS cast-iron rotary airlock valves features the ACS RotorRail that enables tool-less access to the rotor and all internal surfaces of the housing without disassembling the rotor or removing service of upstream or downstream equipment.
The ASC cast-iron rotary airlock valve with RotorRail has the potential to reduce rotor service cycle times by 78%. The ACS RotorRail feature of these cast-iron valves can eliminate axial shaft movement; bearing wear and seal leakage; and premature, uneven rotor vane wear.
The cast-iron housings of these ACS rotary valves are cast in North America and are CNC machined to precise tolerances. The optimal inlet/outlet seal produced by these ACS rotary airlock valves is achieved using the standard ACS Valves 8-vane rotor design. These ACS rotary airlock valves are available in sizes of 6 inches to 16 inches, with pressure differentials up to 15 psi and temperature tolerance up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
