Video Demonstrates Aerodyne's Duck-Bill Valve for Dust Collection

October 27, 2009
Aerodyne, a specialist in solving dry material-handling problems, has introduced an animated demonstration of the Vacu-Valve dust valve, a low-cost, low-maintenance dust collector valve at www.AerodyneUS.com/013.

This brief demo illustrates the effectiveness of the Platypus Vacu-Valve as an automatic dust-handling valve that requires no power supply, lubrication, or controls. The animated video demo gives plant engineers and maintenance managers an accurate look at the normal operation of the Platypus Vacu-Valve. 

Installed on dust collection systems operating under negative pressure, the open-construction Platypus Valve and the closed-construction Armadillo Valve offer worry-free, continuous discharge of free-flowing dust and granules at a fraction of the cost of the standard rotary airlock valves they replace. 

Typical industries that rely on Vacu-Valves include foundry, mining, cement, dry good, pharmaceutical, plastics, chemical, and manufacturing.
