Rotary Valves allow for continuous feeding of powders or granules without flow obstruction. Its use is ideal for the accurate feeding of any vessel or process in a batch system.
The valve’s unique design provides a precise flow control system in far less space due to the fact that its dimensions are smaller than conventional star valves. This valve has been developed to provide uniform dosing of product. Its star configuration and its movement (rotating back and forth over 180 degrees) supply product into the vessel below while keeping the product above contained in the feeding receiver. The reciprocating movement prevents separation and can be regulated as required. With the proper controls, the Rotary Valve can be used as an extremely accurate batch feeder.
