FLSmidth`s Pneumatic Transport group is a worldwide leader in pneumatic bulk conveying for the process and materials handling industries. We offer innovative technology and broad experience in all aspects of material handling systems.
The CI Series rotary valves are also available in sanitary 304 or 316 cast stainless steel models. Sanitary CI Series models also offer the ACS RotorRail™ quick-clean feature.
The DMN-WESTINGHOUSE HP high pressure rotary valve has a very important advantage in air leakage: the special configuration of the body and rotor does not only protect product against degradation, it also does not allow any axial air leakage. This means that this valve has an air leakage reduction of one third against other standard high pressure valves.
For over 125 years, FLSmidth has been an industry leader in pneumatic conveying components and systems for bulk materials handling. FLSmidth has a very strong commitment to research and development. In fact, we operate one of the largest R&D testing facilities in the cement world, developing new equipment and technology. We are a leading designer / supplier of pneumatic conveying systems for the Cement & Minerals, Oil and Gas, and Power industries. Services include system design and engineering, FLSmidth and Fuller® manufactured components, aftermarket parts and services, R&D research and testing, field service.
Some of us work better under pressure, while others like a longer, more drawn out process to stay in control. The same goes for materials as they pass through a conveying system.
Each material requires its own level of pressure, aeration and pocket size to ensure that your system is reaching its optimal material flow.
Here are three things to consider when selecting a rotary valve for your pneumatic conveying system to improve your material flow.
At $500 per hour of downtime, it costs an average of $750 in lost productivity every time you have to clean one traditional valve. Watch this video to learn how we’re trying to make cleaning your valve less terrible.
The Channel Changer from ACS Valves is a plug type divert (PTD) designed to re-route dry materials—such as pellets, powders, kibble and granules—without any degradation. Built for pneumatic conveying systems, the Channel Changer enables more efficient processing.
At the Powtech DMN-WESTINGHOUSE will present its newly designed HP high pressure rotary valve. This valve has a very important advantage in air leakage: the special configuration of the body and rotor does not only protect product against degradation, it also does not allow any axial air leakage. This means that this valve has an air leakage reduction of one third against other standard high pressure valves.
This 10-step video guide shows how to easily re-assemble an ACS Valves standard valve assembly using basic hand tools. This simple rotary valve re-assembly sequence shows the significant labor and downtime savings associated with this rotary valve design versus bolt-together.
