R Series Airlocks

Airlocks

original
All our standard valves are precision machined for close tolerances. Pressure differentials to 20psi and temperatures to 750 deg. F can be handled.

Blowing Seals Airlocks

original
Blowing Seals have been introduced to meet the specific needs of the pneumatic conveying industry and are a natural extension to the Rotary Airlock, both being used to regulate the flow of dry powder,dust or granular product while maintaining an airlock.

Dust Collection Airlocks

original
Introducing a new low cost solution to dust collector valve needs. Our new Dust Collector Valve is a lighter duty option for standard dust collection applications.

Klean Lok Airlocks

original
The Klean Lok is a more specialist valve. Its modular design makes it an easy-clean valve, aimed specifically at the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, where cleanliness, both internally and externally, must be to a high standard.

Non-Standard Airlocks

original
IAC manufactures a wide range of special sized Rotary Airlocks, including some round inlets to square outlets and the range is continuously being extended.

Offset Rotary Valves

original
The Offset Rotary Valve ensures lower pocket fillage as its design means that the rotor is still being filled in the upward cycle with the pellets falling away at the shear point. Similarly, the pelican beak distributes the product across the full width of the rotor.

Stainless Steel Airlocks

original
Our standard stainless steel valves are precision machined for close tolerances. Pressure differentials to 20psi and temperatures to 750B0F can be handled. We have made specials to handle temperatures covering 2200B0F and pressures to 350psi.

R Series Airlocks

The primary function of a rotary valve is to regulate the flow of product from one chamber to another while maintaining a good airlock condition. This product is mainly in dry powder or granular form. In the dust filtration field, good airlocks are essential on cyclone and bag filter applications in order to maintain high dust collection efficiencies.

Airlocks are also important in the pneumatic conveying industry, where product is fed into a high pressure conveying line with minimum air leakage.
