Blow-Through Rotary Valves


The Sunco Blow-Through Rotary Valve is an extension of our Drop-Through Rotary Valve and is designed for use in the Pneumatic Conveying Industry. 


The unique design of the Offset Rotary Valve allows you to introduce high pressure conveying air through the valve body and rotor pockets, which ensures a high  efficiency throughput with a low effective pressure drop.  This is achieved by more blades being in contact with the valve body for longer periods of time, resulting in less air leakage.  It also ensures the each rotor pocket is efficiently emptied.


Design Highlights

  • Maximum Number of Blades in Contact with Body at One Time
  • Good Throat Opening at Valve Inlet, Providing High Pocket Fillage
  • Robust Body Stiffened to Prevent Distortion
  • Heavy Shaft Diameters to Minimize Distortion
  • Outboard Bearings to Prevent Contamination
  • Precision Machining of Components
