Heavy Duty Abrasion-Resistant

The HDAR Heavy Duty Abrasion-Resistant Drop-Thru rotary airlock valves are designed for severe applications where highly abrasive conditions exist. Offered in a choice of ceramic lined or DuraKast™, both can significantly improve the wear factor on the valve and reduce the pre-mature equipment failure often associated with such applications.

The ceramic version starts with any of our Heavy-Duty rotary airlock valves. We bond ceramic tiles to the inside of the cast iron housing and on the rotor tips. The DuraKast units are completely cast out of a hard chrome material suitable for applications with higher pressure differentials. The DuraKast units also have Stellite™ on the rotor tips for extended abrasion resistance. Both styles offer extended life over that of a standard cast iron rotary valve by as much as 6 times.
