The HDPV Heavy Duty Pellet rotary airlock valves are specially designed with offset inlet and discharge openings to reduce product shearing while permitting an even flow of pellets and chip materials into each rotor pocket. The design uses a slide gate to control the flow of pellets through the side inlet and into the rotor.
The HDPV eliminates serious jamming problems experienced with standard rotary airlocks by having the material enter the pocket from the side through a “V” type inlet and exiting through the bottom. This design is especially beneficial in handling pellets, chips, flakes and cubes resulting in reduced pocket degradation.
