  • How to Design a Loss-in-Weight Feeder

    A loss-in-weight feeder is the state of the art today for providing gravimetric (weighing) feeding of a bulk solid. In previous articles I discussed volumetric feeding, which relies on a certain volume/unit time (cu ft/hr or cu m/hr) to maintain feed rate accuracy. To increase discharge rate,...

  • Air Leakage and the Efficient Use of Rotary Valves

    In many pneumatic conveying systems, a rotary valve or rotary airlock is used to feed the dry bulk material from one system to another. The other function of a rotary airlock is to help prevent the transfer of air from the system below the valve into the system above or vice versa. This cannot...
