Airlock

    Airlocks, also known as rotary airlocks, rotary valves, or rotary feeders are used to discharge bulk solids materials such as powders, granules, and pellets from hoppers, bins, receivers, and cyclones into a pneumatic conveying system.

    Airlocks serve a number of purposes that include acting as a sealing device against loss of air while maintaining a flow of bulk materials between components in a pneumatic conveying system, used as a volumetric feeder for metering materials from bins or silos into a conveying system, and as a gravity discharger for cyclone dust collectors or filters. Schenck Process offers a wide range of airlocks for industrial, sanitary and high process rate applications.
