Industry Safety Standard
Without extensive access to moving parts like chain driven valves have, Direct Drives eliminate possible hazard points and lowers the possibilities of injury during operation & maintenance.
There's no need to diminish your maintenance & inventory budget either since there is ZERO need for additional sprockets, chains, repair parts, and...well, you get the point.
Direct Drives keeps the costs from job site accidents out of the equation, and help keep your inventory down, ultimately, increasing your profits.
Fire & Explosion Compliance
When a rotary valve needs repair or maintenance, resulting issues can create a fire risk. Leaking material, for instance, is a source of combustible dust. Strange noises can indicate product buildup or increased rotor clearance — a vital sign of a non-compliant valve. Worn-out or damaged parts can increase the risk of fires, deflagrations, or explosions in a plant.
Aside from regular repair and maintenance, you can take several precautions to ensure your rotary valves and conveying system comply with NFPA regulations.
Other OEM inspection doors are ANYTHING but convenient. They are difficult to jack out, weigh a ton, and don't have handles or an easy way to grasp & move them. Let's not even talk about trying to reinstall them and keep your valve in spec.
All that and they are a 1-time-use. The way they are designed you CAN'T rebuild your valve over time. When your valve needs rebuilt, you have to toss it and buy a whole NEW valve.
With Rotary Airlock's however, you can rebuild and handle with ease. . .
Right Valve For The Job
Unlike all the other OEMs, our valves aren't cast overseas. In fact, they aren't cast at all!
We only use AMERICAN SOURCED STEEL (NO FOREIGN SUPPLY CHAINS) to fabricate our valves so you know they are truly Made In America and come with the strength, reliance, and durability you expect and deserve.
Exclusively offerings such as 4140, 2205, and AR500 steels, Rotary Airlock's valves are made for YOU the way YOU need.
