Rotary Feeder for Bulk Material Handling Processes
The MD Series of rotary feeder valves from ACS Valves provides those involved in bulk material handling process engineering, production supervision and equipment maintenance a material metering valve that immediately contributes tangible operating efficiency advantages and long-term production and maintenance savings. The MD Series of rotary feeders is constructed with an 8-vane rotary valve that ensures proper pressure sealing at the inlet and outlet flange. The optimal seal produced by an MD Series rotary feeder can reduce compressed air loss by up to 28 CFM/year; a savings of up to $3,600/year based on an industry annual, average cost of $1,200 per 10 CFM of compressed air, according to the manufacturer. The MD Series can also immediately contribute additional process efficiency savings with an available variable frequency drive that modulates drive speed and reduces electricity consumption based on the fluctuating power requirements of the MD Series feeder valve system.
