Rotary feeder for bulk material handling.

The MD Series of rotary feeder valves is constructed with an 8-vane rotary valve that ensures proper pressure sealing at the inlet and outlet flange. The optimal seal can reduce compressed air loss by up to 28 CFM per year. It can also contribute additional process efficiency savings with an available variable frequency drive that modulates drive speed and reduces electricity consumption based on the fluctuating power requirements of the system. The rotary feeder designs provide long-term production and maintenance savings by reducing the total lifecycle maintenance requirements of the rotary feeder valves. Housings are CNC-machined to precise tolerances, eliminating axial shaft movement, seal leakage and shortened bearing life. The feeders are available in cast iron or cast 304 or 316 stainless steel. Seven valve sizes are available from 4 inches to 16 inches. * ACS Valves, Ontario, Canada, www.acsvalves.com or call 800-655-3447
