Rotary airlock valves for regulatory compliance
ACS Valves’s Quick-Clean series of rotary airlock valves is designed to aid users in achieving compliance with regulatory standards. The valves feature the ACS RotorRail design that enables full validation access to the rotor and all internal surfaces of the housing without requiring disassembly of the endplate. The stainless-steel housings are machined to precise tolerances. Internal surfaces are polished to a No. 4 finish, and the ACS Valves’s clean-in-place-ready design eliminates internal crevices and joints, where contaminants can accumulate.
The valves’ inlet–outlet seal is produced with an eight-vane rotor design, which eliminates excess pressure loss through the system, ensures cost-efficient upstream- and downstream-material management, and reduces process energy consumption. The valves are available in 304 or 316 stainless steel, and in sizes from 6 to 16 in. with pressure differentials as high as 15 psig and temperature tolerance as high as 500 °F.
