The Meyer W.E.A.R. (Wear Elimination & Abrasion Reduction) valve is designed and engineered for applications where abrasive material build-up is an issue. The valve internals are coated with a variety of wear-resistant coatings specifically matched for the materials conveyed. Housing coating options include heavy chrome, diamond chrome, ceramic, and chrome carbide, along with all white iron cast designs.

The rotor is a closed-end type and typically hard faced on all tip contact areas with Stellite and precision ground. The shaft-packing area is purged through a lantern ring design for optimal life. The design injects clean air between the headplate and the closed end rotor. Conveying air is diverted to each headplate cavity via an engineered orifice place. The air is then reintroduced with the material back into the conveying system.
