Rotary airlock feeders

July 28, 2008

Meyer Rotary Airlock Feeders offer the industry’s broadest range of sizes, features and capabilities, according to the manufacturer. They are available in Standard Duty, Heavy Duty, Sanitary Valve, and Custom Valve series to meet most application needs. Their Standard Duty series provides a great valve for low pressure conveying and dust collection applications. The Heavy Duty HD series airlocks are designed for rugged applications and engineered for high pressure, high temperature service conditions requiring an outboard bearing style unit. All rotor and shaft designs are oversized to eliminate shaft deflection and fatigue. The HDPV Heavy Duty Pellet Valve and the HDSE Heavy-Duty Side-Entry models are specially designed with offset inlet and discharge opening to reduce product shearing. Meyer’s Sanitary Valve SV series features the Kwik-Klean® and Klean-In-Place® models. Both are designed for use in USDA approved plants and are designed for fast disassembly, cleaning and re-assembly without tools and removal from service. Meyer’s CV Custom Valve Series are highly specialized. These units are designed to handle oversized large materials, high pressures or extreme temperatures.
