Bone Meal Reduced Capacity and Speed

Reducing Throughput To Match System Needs – Built To Fit Your Equipment

Industry: Feed Processing

The problem:

  • Our customer required a replacement Rotary Valve to handle bone meal with a lower throughput than their current valve.
  • The Valve outlet needed to match the existing equipment.

The requirement:

  • To provide a Rotary Valve that would meet the required throughput of just over 2 m³/hr while matching the 200mm square connection of the cyclone below.

The solution:

  • Working with our technical team, we were able to provide a solution that fulfilled both requirements set by the customer. The addition of a variable speed motor and a rotor reduced to 50% capacity lowered the throughput from 6 m³/hr down to the specified 2 m³/hr while also maintaining the hygiene levels required for the application.

The result:

  • The solution provided the correct throughput without needing to make transitions to fit the existing connections, avoiding additional cost.
