VHT Sleeve for dust collector valve offers innovative power handling

New high-temp sleeve adds versatility to original Vacu-Valve Dust Collector Valve from Aerodyne

03/07/2011


Aerodyne, a division of Abanaki Corporation, produces the VHT High-Temp replaceable duck bill sleeve for the Vacu-Valve, an allegedly low-cost, low-maintenance dust collector valves available. The VHT sleeve is heat resistant in temperatures up to 400°F/200°C and offers excellent resistance to aggressive fuels and chemicals.

The Vacu-Valve is reportedly a more cost-effective solution than rotary valves for particular applications. It operates as a constant discharge valve for dust collectors, hoppers, cyclones and other equipment operating under negative pressure. Its duck bill design purportedly allows it to dispense dry, free-flowing material continuously and, unlike rotary valves, has no moving parts to maintain. The low-maintenance Vacu-Valve reportedly requires no lubrication or power source and has no controls, whereas rotary valves require a power driven motor, making the Vacu-Valve a cost-effective solution. It's ideal for "keep empty" dust collection units and is available in either carbon steel or stainless steel versions. The replaceable duck bill sleeves are also available in neoprene or white nitrile, making the unit suitable for general use, high-temperature, or abrasive material applications.

The Vacu-Valve is typically used in industries such as mining, foundries, cement, pharmaceutical, dry foods, plastics, chemical, and manufacturing.

Aerodyne Vacu-Valves are an efficient and economical solution for emptying particulate from dust collectors and bag houses. Aerodyne offers a range of valves, including rotary, double dump, slide gate, and knife valves. The material-handling valves are one of the longest lasting and durable in the powder and bulk handling industry.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
