Cleanable airlock for sanitary processes

Designed for high process rates

The Schenck GCA airlock includes all-stainless steel construction (with the exception of the endplate bearings), housing and endplates built for 10 bar explosion-shock resistance and an oversized rotor shaft that creates a naturally radiused rotor pocket for product release. All product contact areas are constructed from FDA- and EC 1935/2004-approved materials. The standard model is a round inlet/round outlet rotary valve, while the demountable version has a rail system that simplifies the removal of the endplate/rotor assembly from the housing for easy cleaning. The airlock is intended for food and pet food applications.
