5 Things to consider when selecting a Rotary Airlock Valve

selecting a Rotary Airlock Valve

Rotary air lock valves ensure safety and efficient mechanism of your industrial working system hence it is recommended to choose them wisely and carefully. It is known  that each industry comes up with different need of course because they have different type of product hence accordingly the kind of air lock valve will change too. Hence we thought of providing our buyers with some outline that will give an idea about what should be considered while choosing rotary air lock valve.

1. Its type: It is important to know what type of rotary air lock valve is needed depending upon your product and the process it needs to go through.  Airlock valve are mainly responsible for separating product with differential pressure within the inlet and outlet side of the valve. Hence it plays a vital role in the powder separation with efficiency and safety.

2. Size:  Let’s say that the amount of product fed is determined by the volumetric capacity of the revolution time of the rotor. We must estimate the speed at which rotation will occur and the speed of the higher end limit should be taken into consideration.

3. Nature of the product: We surely need to select a rotary air lock valve depending upon the nature of the product because the product that is to be transported should not interfere the efficiency of the working airlock valve. Before choosing air lock valve, one should understand with depth the nature of the product and all the factors related to it like what can be done in case of any problem if occurred or its maintenance.selecting a Rotary Airlock Valve4. Pressure: Since the working of the valve will depend upon the differential pressure, it will act as an important factor in determining the type of rotary air lock valve. If the system is operating within high pressure limit then the rotary air lock valve needed should be durable that can withstand that much pressure and with an in-built venting system to prevent leakage. It is obvious that a system that operates of higher pressure will need an efficient and sturdily designed rotary airlock valve for operation.

5. Temperature: We would also take into account one of the factors that one should bear in mind is the temperature. Depending upon how high or low the temperature of the working system will be or how much it may rise during the operation of the system will lead to the designing of the rotary air lock valve. Hence it is important to know your product and its working temperature from beginning till the end and accordingly choose rotary air lock valve.
