Inboard bearing rotary valve (RV)

    High-efficiency airlock

    The Inboard Bearing Rotary Valve (RV) is a high efficiency airlock with minimum leakage blow-back. Its inboard bearings provide the airlock with maximum shaft support and minimize rotor deflection.

    The RV features double opposed lip seals that protect the inboard bearings from product infiltration. It is designed for food applications in wash-down environments.
