An engineering company is working with a peanut supplier on how to control the pneumatic peanut shell waste. The peanut company is currently using six cyclones in various sizes to dispose of the waste. The company, however, by not having any airlock valves under the cyclone, are carrying through some dust into a clean outlet. The company, looking to fix this problem, turned to Aerodyne.
Dan, after considering the system in use, suggest that the company use a 8” Rotary R Valve as an airlock valve and install a fabric filter to increase dust removal. The R-Valve’s design for continuous discharge of free-flowing, low-abrasive dry solid in gravity flow or low pressure systems makes this product a perfect fit for the company’s current system. In addition, this rotary valve's steel plate construction gives it an advantage over other valves in quality, flexibility and durability. By using the R-Valve the company will gain an airlock under the cyclones that will be efficient and durable. Furthermore, by using the fabric filter they will increase their dust removal solving the company’s problems with its current system.
