Rotary Airlock Valves

ACS Valves

Rotary Airlock Valves
  • ACS Valves introduces a new line of cast iron rotary airlock valves 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 time-consuming disassembly of the rotor, or the removal from service of upstream or downstream equipment commonly associated with standard valve configurations 
  • The ASC cast iron rotary airlock valve with RotorRail™ has shown, when compared to bolt-together housing designs, to reduce rotor service cycle times by 78%; and, as a result, increase total process uptime by 18% during a typical 8-hour operating shift
  • The ACS RotorRail™ feature of 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
  • 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
  • The ACS Valves 8-vane rotor design eliminates excess pressure loss through the system, ensures cost-efficient upstream and downstream material management, and reduces process energy consumption 
  • These ACS rotary airlock valves are available in sizes from 6 inches to 16 inches, with pressure differentials up to 15 PSIG, and temperature tolerance up to 500ºF 
  • Rotor configurations include: closed-end, metering, shallow-pocket, Teflon®-coated, and adjustable-tip
  • Adjustable rotor tips are available in stainless steel, hardened steel, or bronze. Interior surface coating options include: hard chrome and Teflon®

ACS Valves designs, engineers, and manufactures rotary valves for metering, feeding, and airlock in bulk material processing and pneumatic conveying applications. ACS Valves products are sold through a global network of sales engineers and supported by a corporate staff of applications engineers and customer services technicians.
