Pelletron Offers Quick-Clean Rotary Valve

March 1, 2012

Besides the quick-clean valve with expandable rotor on rails, Pelletron developed a new type sanitary valve with a hinged rotor. Dust or other foreign parts can settle on the rails of a rail-type valve in a dusty environment. This problem can be eliminated through the new hinged extraction system. Special designed hinges keeps the rotor in leveled position when extracted. This provides easy pull-out and push-back of the rotor. Shaft couplings are designed for easy engagement. Special surface treatments such as polishing or surface hardening are available based on customer requirements. The valve is direct driven or chain driven, depending on customer preference. Various types of rotors are available. The valve is designed for a differential pressure of 1.5 bar and constructed completely of stainless steel. The valve and all equipment and accessories are designed for complete washdown. The valve can be used for powders and pellets. Various rotor types and sizes are available.
