Rotary Airlock Models

FT Series Rotary Airlock

Flow through rotary airlocks are used in wide range of applications. The material enters from the top and exits from the bottom flange of rotary airlock.

Flow Through Rotary Airlock

BT Series Rotary Airlock

Blow through rotary valves are used in pneumatic transport systems. They are suitable for transferring sticky powdered materials. The material enters from the top and exits from side flange and transferred to conveying pipe.

Blow Through Rotary Airlock

OS Series Rotary Airlock

The Off Set type also referred as side entry type rotary feeders are used for preventing crackage of delicate materials like sunflower seed and peanut. These models are also suitable for hard to shear pellets like nylon or plastic granules.

Other Options

Outside Bearing

To protect bearings from damage of abbrassive and dusty materials, the bearing housing is mounted outside of side flanges. Packing seals are used in these models.
