Rotary Airlock Valves
Rotary airlock valves are very popular in the Industry and are used to minimise system air loss while transferring materials between vessels with differential pressures or as volumetric feeders for metering materials at specified flow rates. Available in Cast iron, Cast Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Heat resistant Steel and other materials of construction from 100mm to 2000mm size to meet capacities upto 500M3/hr.
These airlocks are generally used to accomplish three basic tasks; to feed material from a bin or hopper, to deliver fines from a collector while sealing against air loss and feed material into a pneumatic conveying system against pressure.
Hyquip builds a heavier airlock to closer tolerances which means bettersealing properties. Ourairlocks are generally chosen for applications where air leakage and gas loss are of important considerations, even though they are also frequently specified for feeder applications because of their ability to withstand the abrasion and stress of heavy duty feeder applications.You can depend on Hyquip airlocks performing as specified, as our specifications are intentionally conservative to help ensure this.
HYQUIP has perfected the construction of airlocks for this application and has many successful installations. The power demand for these airlocks are more than that of other applications.

Self Cleaning Rotary Airlock
It is so designed that the pockets are mechanically cleaned per revolution to avoid loss of rated capacity.
