Clean-In-Place Rotary Airlock Valve
Designed specifically for sanitary applications, the Quick-Clean Series of rotary airlock valves from ACS Valves aids in regulatory standards and practices compliance; reduces cleaning and sanitizing time; and simplifies inspection, according to the manufacturer. This line of ACS cast stainless steel rotary airlock valves features the ACS RotorRail™ design that enables full validation access to the rotor and all internal surfaces of the housing without time-consuming disassembly of the endplate, or the concern for accurate rotor re-alignment during re-assembly. The stainless steel housings of these ACS valves are cast in North America to ensure superior strength in the composition and solidification of the housing’s metallurgy. The stainless steel housings are then CNC-machined to precise tolerances; and, with internal surfaces polished to a No. 4 finish, the ACS Valves CIP-ready design eliminates internal crevices and joints, common with bolt-together designs, where contaminants can accumulate.
