ERLANGER, KY — Roto-Disc Airlock/Double-Dump valves are now able to feed and measure product into and/or out of pressure or vacuum environments in four modes. Through the development of the Roto-Disc Cycle Timer (RDCC) and enhancements to its accumulator chambers, applications now have volumetric and gravimetric measuring capability, in addition to traditional temporal and manual control. Included in this new capability is the option to switch between any of these modes almost instantaneously and then return to operation just as quick, providing measurement flexibility.
The new feeding solutions are accomplished with load-cell mounts and/or level sensor ports, both of which are located on the chamber according to the application requirements. Gravimetric solutions are provided with flexible connections on the assembly for accurate weight measurement. This processing solution can take the place of other feeding devices and make processes more efficient.
