Gericke USA’s RotaVal line of rotary valves discharge powders from hoppers, fill process machinery, dose from silos, and isolate pneumatic conveying zones between sifters, mixers, screw conveyors, and other equipment. The new valves offer more than 15,000 different configurations to suit virtually any powder handling process, along with custom valves for special situations, according to the company.

The new line includes the hygienic series, heavy-duty series, and extra heavy-duty series. The hygienic series features stainless-steel construction with polished internals and externals and removable end covers, all set on a new sliding guide rail system for fast cleaning without removal from the processing line. The heavy-duty series valves come in standard sizes as large as 600 mm x 1200 mm and are offered in cast iron, SG iron, stainless steel, or aluminum to match process requirements without over-specifying.

For highly abrasive materials and extreme situations, the extra heavy-duty valves feature durable cast iron with hardened steel blades, plasma nitride-coated shaft sleeves, and tungsten carbide-coated liners for high-wear resistance. All valves in the line are available in optional explosion containment models for processing combustible dust.
