  • Self-Cleaning Rotary Valves

    May 25, 2012

    A second rotor has been added to the PMV modular rotary valve to give it self-cleaning capability. The second rotor of the PMDS double rotor valve is synchronized and gear-driven to scrape clean the rounded pockets on the primary rotor on each revolution. As with the company’s other rotary...

  • Cone Valve

    May 24, 2012

    The cone valve is used in conjunction with the charging hopper as the main inlet and sealing valve for the conveying system. The charging hopper’s design eliminates head pressure, and vents the displaced air when material fills the pressure vessel, thus allowing the single cone valve to...

  • Light-Duty Aerolock Rotary Valve

    May 22, 2012

    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...

  • Slide Diverter Valve

    May 21, 2012

    The three-position slide diverter valve features a sealing method that uses regulated compressed air, applied to the sealing rings. This results in an airtight seal between the inlet and outlet ports and allows the valve to can be used in either pressure or vacuum pneumatic conveying systems. This...

  • Slide Valves

    May 21, 2012

    These valves consist of no more than three components: the body, the sliding blade, and the drive (hand wheel, electropneumatic actuator, or gear motor). Dismantling and assembly of the valve components is carried out in less than five minutes due to a specially designed incorporated inlet section...

  • Drop Through and Blow Through Rotary Airlock Valves

    May 18, 2012

    These rotary air lock valves are designed for sanitary pneumatic conveying systems operating within -15 in. Hg to +15 PSIG with 6- to 12-in.-capacity options. The standard nine-blade rotor positions two blades to always be in contact with the discharge side of the housing providing a superior seal...

  • Cleanable Round Airlock

    May 16, 2012

    The cleanable round airlock (CRA) can handle extremely high process rates on products. Now, high-end food and pet food manufacturers can use cleanable technology in systems where high product volume demand may have prevented their use in the past. Tool-free valve operation makes it easier to clean...

  • Heavy-Duty Discharge Valve

    May 15, 2012

    The Lorenz discharge valve is manufactured with heavy-duty 3/16-in. stainless blades with built in material scrapers that aid in minimizing material packing or building up. The square machined blade “dead ends” against the body of the valve allowing material to escape below. The valve...

  • Externally Adjustable Slide Gate

    May 14, 2012

    This product was developed to address a service issue that has been a concern for years with traditional slide gates. The more traditional slide gates incorporate an internal perimeter seal arrangement. To access these seals the traditional gate required the equipment above the gate to be...

  • Vibra-Gate Duplex Valve

    May 6, 2012

    The Vibra-Gate duplex valve is ideal for discharging almost any granular material from a bin or hopper where the materials are difficult to discharge. It easily handles sticky, cohesive, high-moisture, and difficult-to-handle materials, and has the ability of utilizing vibration to discharge and...
