AIRLOCK

Product Code: L

Airlocks, also known as rotary valves or rotary airlocks, are essential components in pneumatic conveying systems and bulk material handling processes. These devices serve as a crucial interface between two separate environments, often with varying pressure or composition. Airlocks work by rotating a rotor with vanes or blades within a housing, allowing materials to pass through while maintaining an airtight seal to prevent the escape of air or gas from one chamber to another. This prevents the disruption of pressure differentials, enhances material flow control, and reduces the risk of dust or foreign contaminants entering sensitive equipment or environments. Airlocks are widely used in industries like food processing, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, and manufacturing, where the precise transfer of granular or powdered materials is essential for efficiency and product quality while maintaining environmental separation.
