Designed specifically for pneumatic conveying of dense materials, the Aero-Flow Series of rotary feeders from ACS Valves provides highly efficient, air-assisted, material introduction to pneumatic conveying systems. This series of rotary feeders uses a proprietary, dual-induction endplate design to introduce pressurized air from both endplates into the rotor pockets carrying process material. The design speeds the material fluidization process, improves material consistency, and optimizes feeder energy consumption when compared to conventional, single-induction feeder designs, according to the manufacturer. Further energy efficiency is provided by an available ACS variable frequency drive to modulate the feeder drive speed and reduce power requirements based on the fluctuating performance needs of the system. ACS Aero-Flow feeder housings are available in cast iron, and 304 or 316 stainless steel; in either 17 1/2-in. or 21 1/8-in. heights. Additionally, the feeders provide optimal service in applications with pressure differentials up to 15 psig, and elevated temperatures to 500 F.
