ACS Valves July 03, 2012
The new Aero-Flow™ Series of rotary feeders from ACS Valves provides highly efficient, air-assisted, material introduction to pneumatic conveying systems. Using a proprietary, dual-induction endplate design to introduce pressurized air from both endplates into the rotor pockets carrying process material, the high bulk density material, when mixed with air, is more effectively released from the rotor pockets, and is more efficiently introduced to the pneumatically conveyed material flow. The Aero-Flow™ Series dual-induction design speeds the material fluidization process, improves material consistency, and optimizes feeder energy consumption when compared to conventional, single-induction feeder designs. Further energy efficiency comes with an available ACS variable frequency drive.
