Cast Iron Rotary Airlock Valves

September 10, 2013

ACS Valves offers 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.
