Rotary Valve Plays Pivotal Role in Food Starch Production

Posted by Tom Hobson on Jul 26, 2011 7:57:04 AM

Rotary valve technology is an integral part of the food production industry, especially when processing lightweight, free-flowing material that is in the form of a fine powder or grain. A prime example of this would be food starch, a carbohydrate derived from a variety of grains including corn, wheat, tapioca, rice and potatoes. Among its many applications, food starch is often used by food and beverage manufacturers to improve texture, act as a binding agent, improve stability during processing or extend a product’s shelf life. Plant managers should select a reliable rotary valve for the conveyance or transportation of food starch during manufacturing. A rotary valve is specially designed to effectively dispense collected material without disturbing the vacuum environment of your dust collection system. Its motorized vanes allow food starch to pass through without creating a direct opening between the inlet and outlet sides of the valve. Among the variety of rotary valve options available, the Rhino Rotary R Valve offers exceptional durability, quality and flexibility at a great value.
