Airlock for pneumatic conveying systems
The CV blow-thru design allows the airlock to meter product from rotating pockets directly into the conveying line. It is perfect for handling light bulk density product or powders. Special designs for handling frozen food products are also available.
CV Airlocks are available in cast iron, 304 stainless steel, or aluminum construction. Housings and end plates are cast construction while rotors are one-piece, fixed-relieved, open-end fabricated construction. The “CV” units utilize dual, single lip seals and inboard press fit bearings. Rotors have 1/16” land rotor tips with options for various adjustable tips. The CV Airlock is available in either a baffled or non-baffled inlet arrangement. Housings with built-in baffles are recommended when handling light bulk density product or powders that would normally not flow well with blow-by air circulating through the product. CV Airlocks are available with inlet and outlet line connections in 3”, 4” and 5” sizes.
