CLEVELAND, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 05/25/11 -- Aerodyne®, a division of Abanaki Corporation, announces the Vacu-Valve® Platypus Trickle Valve, one of the lowest-cost, lowest-maintenance dust collector valves available. The Vacu-Valve Platypus is a trickle valve that operates as a constant discharge valve for dust collectors, hoppers, cyclones and other equipment operating under negative pressure.

This unit is perfect for 'keep empty' dust collection units and is offered in carbon steel or stainless steel versions. The replaceable duck bill sleeves are available in a variety of options including neoprene, high-temp or the new and improved white nitrile, making the trickle valve suitable for general use, high-temperature or abrasive material applications.
