Rotary Feeder Valves

March 5, 2014

The MD Series of rotary feeder valves are material metering valves that immediately contribute tangible operating efficiency advantages and long-term production and maintenance savings. The MD Series of rotary feeders is constructed with an 8-vane rotary valve that ensures proper pressure sealing at the inlet and outlet flange. The optimal seal produced by an MD Series rotary feeder can reduce compressed air loss by up to 28 CFM/year, a savings of up to $3600/year based on an industry annual average cost of $1200 per 10 CFM of compressed air. The MD Series can also immediately contribute additional process efficiency savings with an available variable frequency drive that modulates drive speed and reduces electricity consumption based on the fluctuating power requirements of the MD Series feeder valve system.
