|For over 20 years, Sunco Powder Systems has supplied rotary airlock,
rotary valve and many other components used in pneumatic conveying and
other dry material handling applications. Entire turnkey pneumatic
conveyors and screw conveyors can be designed, manufactured and installed
The Sunco rotary airlock valve line is applicable to a diverse range
of applications. Rotary Valves (Airlocks) regulate the flow of material
from one chamber to another while maintaining a good airlock condition.
Common rotary valve uses include at the discharge of dust collectors, storage
bins and pneumatic conveying applications. Sunco Rotary Airlocks
Another product in the Sunco Powder Systems line is the diverter valve.
We offer both gravity diverter valve and conveying diverter valve models.
Gravity diverter valves are a fabricated design used on gravity applications
where little or no pressure is
A slide gate valve provides a quick and efficient method for isolating
and controlling the flow of free flowing powders, granules and dust.
Slide gate valves actuation can be manual, rack and pinion, motorized or
pneumatic. A double dump valve is commonly used in pneumatic applications
where a rotary airlock is not suitable due to the potential for leakage.
Double dump valves are also used on fibrous, oversized or very abrasive
products where a rotary airlock would suffer intolerable wear.
The heart of pneumatic conveyor systems is the blower providing air flow. Sunco Powder Systems designs and builds custom blower packages for this purpose. Our blower packages are for positive and vacuum service, and are available from 20 to 5,000 CFM and to 15 psi or 16" hg.
Sunco bulk bag unloaders provide a convenient, safe and dust-free method for handling and discharging bulk bags. A bulk bag unloader is constructed from carbon steel, stainless steel or sanitary materials, as required. Bulk bag unloaders can be provided with or without vibration and hoist/trolley (motorized or pneumatic). Standard bulk bag unloaders include vibration isolator hangers, dust pick-up ports, tubular support frame and bag lift adapter.
Sunco bin activators are mounted to the bottoms of silos and hoppers and are designed to promote the uniform flow of materials that typically do not discharge well. A bin activator can range in size from 2 ft. to 14 ft in diameter.
Sunco screw conveyors are custom-designed and custom-manufactured to
your exact requirements. The screw conveyor design is another efficient
means of transferring powders and other dry materials. Sunco screw
conveyors can range from 4" to 60" diameters, with lengths to suit
any application. Typical screw conveyor construction is from
mild steel, carbon steel,
Entire conveying systems can also be designed, manufactured and installed by Sunco. Broadly, or pneumatic conveying system products fall into three categories. A vacuum unloading system is used for short distances where high rates are not required. Vacuum unloading is a reliable low cost system and is normally used to convey a product from one point to another. A pressure system can be built to accommodate low, medium and high capacities requirements. A pressure conveying system is suitable for short runs up to 500 feet. A vacuum pressure system is a combination of both the vacuum and pressure systems and provides unloading and transfer of a product from one point to another or from one point to several destination points.
If your requirement is for transfer, conveying or storage of dry materials such as flakes, powder, dust, pellets, granules, chips or similar materials, turn to Sunco Powder Systems. We are recognized experts in the field of dry materials handling, and we'll recommend the best components or an entire system to accomplish your goals.
