ACS Valves (Caledonia, Ontario, Canada) has introduced the ACS Aero-Flow™ Series of rotary feeders, which use a proprietary, dual-induction endplate design to introduce pressurized air from both endplates into the rotor pockets carrying process material. The high bulk density material, when mixed with air, is more effectively released from the rotor pockets, and is more efficiently introduced to the pneumatically conveyed material flow. The Aero-Flow™ Series dual-induction design speeds the material fluidization process, improves material consistency, and optimizes feeder energy consumption when compared to conventional, single-induction feeder designs, says the company. Further energy efficiency is provided by an available ACS variable frequency drive to reduce power requirements.
