Quick-Take-Apart Rotary Airlock

January 29, 2013

The Quick-Take-Apart (QTA) series rotary airlock is ideal for feeding applications that requires frequent removal of a rotary valve. This valve was engineered specifically for applications where continuous removal of the rotary airlock internals is necessary. The QTA permits safe, tool-less removal of the rotor and endplate as one single piece. This eliminates the often time-consuming step of "gapping" the rotor during reassembly for quick and easy operation. Additionally, there are no guide rails that require extra maintenance. Other features include: eight-blade rotors; available square sizes of 6, 8, 10 or 12 in.; cast iron or stainless steel construction; and direct drive gear-motors available in 9, 15 or 23 RPM. The QTA Series can easily manage many different applications, including ammonium alumina, cement, charcoal, ground or instant coffee, whole or cracked corn and cornmeal, flax seed, fly ash, grain, whole or rolled oats, potassium carbonate, salt, soybeans, starch, sugar, sulfur, and a variety of other materials.
