A new online valve calculator from Gericke USA helps process engineers and other specifiers determine the proper rotary valve for nearly any installation.

Developed to provide a free, preliminary recommendation, the online valve calculator walks users through selections by industry and hygienic requirements to reveal the ideal Gericke RotaVal rotary valve model, then invites data inputs for desired throughput, material bulk density, and projected filling efficiency to reveal the appropriate sizes.

Ideal for guidance in processing powders, pellets, granules, flakes, and chips, the online valve calculator covers the entire range of RotaVal rotary airlock valves, which are available in 15,000 configurations plus custom-engineered models to suit virtually any food, dairy, beverage, chemical, pharmaceutical, plastic, or other installation. The line of modular rotary valves comprises the food-grade hypergienic series valves, the versatile heavy-duty series, and the extra heavy-duty series for abrasive and extreme situations, plus the cleanable and USDA-certified fast-clean models.

The online valve calculator is accessed at www.rotaval.co.uk. Upon receiving the results, a free consultation with a Gericke RotaVal engineer is offered.
