Airlock valve,also named discharge valve,star discharger,cindervalve,is an important equipment for pneumatic conveying system and dust removal system.
It is mainly used to discharge the material continuously from the tripper and dust collector,and make sure the inner pressure not exposed to atmosphere pressure evironment.
The airlock valve is made of gear motor,sealing element,impellers and rotor housing on which many rotating blades are set.It is capable of discharging powder,small particles,flaky or fibre continuously by the differential pressure of material.Now it has been widely used in chemical,pharmacy,drying,grains,cement,environmental protection and power industry etc.
Roots blower,silo emptying, cyclone discharging, dust collection systems, etc.
Rotary airlock can handle materials in Powder, Pellet, Flake shapes and also fiber materials. Like Flour ,Wooden chips ,Plastic ,Animal feed ,Sugar ,Cement ,Dust , Etc
3. Working Principle:
Material falls onto the blades and rotates with the blades to the outlet under the airlock valve.Material can be discharged continuously.
In pneumatic conveying system,the airlock valve can lock the air and supply material continuously. The low speed of the rotor and tiny space can prevent the airflow from reverse flow,and ensure a stable air pressure and regular discharge of the material.
The arilock valve acts as the material discharger in the material collecting system.
