The rotary airlock feeder is one of the most important components in pneumatic conveying systems. But do you know how to solve the rotary feeder problem?
There are many manufacturers on the market that offer rotary airlock feeder, but almost all rotary airlock feeders include these basic components, housing and top plate, bearings that support the rotor with blades, and shaft seals. In operation, the motor and drive chain rotate the rotor shaft to rotate the rotor and top plate within the housing. As the blade rotates, a fixed volume of material passes through the material inlet to the space between adjacent blades and is brought into the material outlet in the bag. In any application, the rotary airlock feeder is always used as a gravity flow device.
