In addition to the quick clean valve with expandable rotor on rails, Pelletron developed a new type of valve with a hinged rotor. Rail type valves have the disadvantage that dust or other foreign parts can settle on the rails. This problem could be eliminated through the hinges. Specially designed hinges keep the rotor in leveled position when extracted. This provides easy pull-out and push-back of the rotor. Shaft couplings are designed for easy engagement. Special surface treatments are available based on customer requirements. The valve is direct driven or chain driven, depending on the customer preference. The valve is designed for a differential pressure of 22psi, and constructed completely of stainless steel. The valve and all equipment and accessories are designed for complete wash–down. The valve can be equipped with rotors for powder or pellets. Various sizes are available.
