TAKE YOUR OEM VALVE TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Unlike the other OEMs who build your valve to fit the SYSTEM you have, Rotary Airlock has designed, engineered, tested, and implemented upgraded valves that are constructed SPECIFICALLY for your process. From 316L Stainless, AR500 wear plates, and 17-4 Shafting to name a few, we have YOUR upgrade, no matter your application or industry.

Here are just some of the industries we've worked with over the last 25 Years...

AND MANY MORE...

THE INDUSTRY'S STRONGEST HOUSINGS

02

Unlike the other OEMs who mass cast their housing with cheap steel to save the bottom line, Rotary Airlock puts you the customer first and builds our airlocks right here in America from hardened steel. 

MILD STEEL

This is the base material for almost all standard and non-corrosive applications.

304L Stainless Steel

This is the base material for moderately corrosive applications and those designating a need for food-grade quality.

HOUSING 304L SS.png

316L Stainless Steel

This is the base material for severely corrosive applications and those designating a need for food-grade quality.

YOUR ROTOR, THE RIGHT WAY

At Rotary Airlock, we implement your EXACT configuration for your application. Every rotor configuration and material is individually analyzed, welded, inspected, and tested. From an Open Rotor w/Fixed vanes to a Closed Rotor w/Adjustable Tips, we work directly with you, your engineers, and your maintenance teams to ensure a Master Class configuration just for you.

ROTOR CONFIGURATION

Open Fixed Rotor.png

OPEN ROTOR  |  FIXED VANES

This rotor plan is standard across almost all AIRLOCK configurations.

Closed FIxed Rotor.png

CLOSED ROTOR  |  FIXED VANES

This rotor plan is standard across almost all gravity FEEDER configurations.

Closed Adjustable Rotor.png

CLOSED ROTOR  |  ADJUSTABLE TIPS

This rotor plan is recommended by Rotary Airlock for SPECIFIC/CUSTOM configurations. *Not usually suggested across most industries but is available.

Approximately 1-1.5 degree vane angle that is recommended for applications with force filled pockets that helps aid in the separation of bulk material as it is introduced into the valve

CANTED VANES  |  1-1.5 

Canted Rotor.png

VANE CONFIGURATION

Approximately 5-5.5 degree vane angle that is not readily used but is available for specific/custom configurations.

HELICAL VANES  |  5-5.5
