Caledonia -- N3W 1M1
The BT series blow-through feeder/airlock from ACS Valves is designed to ensure optimal bulk density and throughput of hard-to-convey materials such as fine powders and flakes that, in high-pressure pneumatic conveying applications, can easily over-aerate and reduce material feed efficiency. The design decreases excess aeration of the material during conveying with an integrated vent port on the return side of the valve housing that automatically vents air leakage. The BT Series 8-vane rotary valve design significantly reduces air leakage and maximizes the flow path of air through the rotor pocket; improving material pocket release, according to the company. The BT series blow-through feeder/airlock housings are available in cast iron, or 304 or 316 stainless steel; in either 8-inch or 10-inch round flange sizes. The BT series is available with a hard chrome housing interior and with adjustable rotor tips.
