Two new rotary valves with patented anti-shearing device and double lip seals were introduced for conveying pellets and granules by Pelletron Corp., Lancaster, Pa. One is for high-pressure pneumatic conveying of hard pellets like PET, PC, and acrylic. The high-pressure valve withstands differential pressures up to 50 psi. Sizes run 4 to 24 in. Also new are rotary valves with hard-coated aluminum housings and stainless-steel rotors. These are designed for polyolefins and other plastics in gravity or pneumatic conveying at up to 220,000 lb/hr (same sizes as above). (717) 293-4008 • www.pelletroncorp.com
