Meyer - Model WEAR - Wear Elimination & Abrasion Reduction Valve
The Meyer W.E.A.R. (Wear Elimination & Abrasion Reduction) Valve provides the ultimate package for your abrasive material build up applications. The valve internals are coated with a variety of wear resistant coatings specifically matched for the materials conveyed. Housing coating options include Heavy Chrome, Diamond Chrome, Ceramic and Chrome Carbide along with all White Iron cast designs. The rotor is a closed end type and typically hard faced on all tip contact areas with Stellite and precision ground. The shaft packing area is purged through a lantern ring design for optimal life.
- Our rotary airlock valves are used in a wide range of applications where there is need to minimize system air loss while transferring material between vessels with differing pressures.
- They are used as feeder valves to meter the flow of material between vessels with equivalent pressures.
- You will also find them doing double duty in systems where there is a need to minimize system air or gas loss while regulating the flow of material between vessels with differing pressures.
The unique design injects clean air between the headplate and the closed end rotor. Conveying air is diverted to each headplate cavity via an engineered orifice place. This keeps product from accumulating on the headplate interior surface area and secondly flushes material from between the closed end shroud area and headplate. The air is then re-introduced with the material back into the conveying system.
The WEAR valves are available in sizes 6 through 14 with square or round housings to match most collector discharge flanges.
