ACS Valves Rotary Valve Design Provides More Material Throughput
- Published: Tuesday, 03 September 2013 16:09
ACS Valves announces the CDC-CI Series of rotary valves designed specifically for those particular bulk material processing and production applications where very high-volume material throughput is required; and where upstream and downstream equipment configurations dictate a drop-in-type valve profile.
To enable this high-volume material throughput, the ACS Valves CDC-CI Series rotary valve features an enlarged housing barrel. The CDC-CI barrel is cast wider and taller within its valve housing profile than are the barrels of conventional rotary valves.
The large barrel-to-housing proportion, within the industry-standard housing profile of the CDC-CI rotary valve, ensures the dimensions of the CDC-CI Series housing profile remain consistent with industry-standard dimensions for valve housings.
The CDC-CI standard, 8-vane rotor design, complete with beveled tips and sides, contributes to total process efficiency by providing correct inlet and outlet sealing and, therefore, maintaining proper pressure differentials upstream and downstream of the CDC-CI Series valve, while also reducing compressed air requirements.
The CDC-CI Series valve housings are cast in North America to ensure superior strength in the composition and solidification of the housing’s metallurgy; and to eliminate dimples, crevices and pits in the housing’s product contact and non-contact surfaces. The housings are CNC-machined to precise tolerances; eliminating axial shaft movement, seal leakage and shortened bearing life.
