Rotary Valves Rotary Valves for High-Volume Material Throughput

Editor: Dr. Jörg Kempf

ACS Valves announces the CDC-CI Series of rotary valves designed specifically for those particular bulk material processing and production applications where very high-volume material throughput is required; and where upstream and downstream equipment configurations dictate a drop-in-type valve profile.

To enable this high-volume material throughput, the rotary valves feature an enlarged housing barrel. The CDC-CI barrel is cast wider and taller within its valve housing profile than are the barrels of conventional rotary valves.

The large barrel-to-housing proportion, within the industry-standard housing profile of the valve, ensures the dimensions of the housing profile remain consistent with industry-standard dimensions for valve housings.

The standard, 8-vane rotor design, complete with beveled tips and sides, contributes to total process efficiency by providing correct inlet and outlet sealing and, therefore, maintaining proper pressure differentials upstream and downstream of the valve, while also reducing compressed air requirements. The valves are available in cast iron, or 304 or 316 stainless steel.
