Aerodyne's new Vacu-Valve airlock valve

Aerodyne Environmental offers a newly designed, low-maintenance Vacu-Valve airlock valve. The Vacu-Valve is a trickle valve that operates as a constant discharge valve for dust collectors, hoppers, cyclones, and other equipment operating under negative pressure. Its duck bill design allows it to dispense free-flowing material continuously. The Vacu-Valve is available in the open design of the Platypus or the closed design of the Armadillo.

The new design offers a square flange or circular flange to better accommodate dust collection systems. This low-maintenance trickle valve is self-actuating, does not require lubrication, and has no controls or power requirements. This unit is ideal for "keep empty" dust collection units, and is offered in carbon steel or stainless steel versions. The replaceable duck bill sleeves are available in neoprene, white nitrile, VHT, and silicone. The variety of sleeve materials allows the Vacu-Valve to accommodate a wide range of applications.

The Vacu-Valves are typically utilized in industries such as foundries, mining, cement, pharmaceutical, dry foods, plastics, chemical, and manufacturing.

The new square design will be available to order November 1 and are available in 8- or 10-in. sizes.
