The K-Tron Light-Duty (LD) Aerolock rotary valve is engineered for low-pressure or low-vacuum service applications. The LD Aerolock is ideally suited for use with fine powders and dusts commonly associated with cyclone or filter-type dust collectors where a head of material does not build up on top of the airlock inlet. Pressure differential across the LD is limited to a maximum of 0.2 bar (3 PSI), and an absolute maximum temperature of 200°F. The unit is designed with flexible polyurethane tips on the rotors to keep air loss and tolerance adjustments to a minimum. The rotors are easily replaced as they wear. The LD has a six-blade rotor and is available with flat or relieved tips in several rotor choices including open-ended, reduced displacement, and staggered pocket. The LD utilizes a single radial ball bearing on both the thrust and drive sides. Materials of construction include carbon and stainless steel with multiple coating options.
