The BT Series blow-through feeder/airlock is designed to ensure optimal bulk density and throughput of hard-to-convey materials such as fine powders and flakes that, in high-pressure pneumatic conveying applications, can easily over-aerate and reduce material feed efficiency. The BT Series design decreases excess aeration of the material during conveying with an integrated vent port on the return side of the valve housing that automatically vents air leakage. The BT Series 8-vane rotary valve design reduces air leakage and maximizes the flow path of air through the rotor pocket, improving material pocket release. The minimal air leakage, and resulting low, effective pressure drop of the BT Series optimizes material flow density, improves material conveying efficiency, and reduces total compressed air consumption.
