Locks. Rotary valves

At Domfesa, we manufacture rotary valves or also called sluices. The rotary valves are equipments with two main functions: to dose and to mix the material that passes through this one and of sluice. By means of the dosage, the volume of the material to be transported is controlled, whether it be powder, granules, delicate materials, high temperatures or abrasive products. The lock function allows the entrance of solids in high pressure areas restricting the passage of air or gas, isolating high pressure systems from low pressure systems.

We offer rotary valves of different materials, depending on how the working conditions will be in the operation of these, to offer a durable product. These can be manufactured in carbon steel, stainless steel etc. The manufacture of these valves can be in different sizes according to the needs and requirements of the client.

The valves are formed by the inlet, central rotary system and outlet. Its operation is that of the rotor chambers, which remove the material from the equipment installed above it, and through the rotary movement of the product is discharged from the bottom of the rotary valve. This operation is carried out continuously, promoting the regular discharge of the product.
