Pellet Valve Airlock
No shearing of material is accomplished by using a side inlet with an “integral curved slide gate” to control flow of the material evenly across the open rotor pocket.
The slide gate is manually adjustable (positioning dependent upon the angle of repose of the material being handled) permitting an even flow of pellets into each rotor pocket. The slide gate is sealed at the inlet with high grade packing material. The inlet of the Pellet Valve includes a “V” type throat assisting the non-shearing of particles as each rotor blade closes past the inlet. The housing also incorporates provisions for a clean out port at the inlet and a housing vent connection when required by the application.
