Using Airlock Double Dump Valves to Prevent Leakage

The gap between the ends and the housing of traditional rotary valves allows leakage. Your industrial processes need reliable and efficient material handling solutions.

Our airlock double-dump valves ensure seamless and controlled material transfer. We’ll share how they prevent valve leakage and leakage classification.

Preventing Valve Leakage

Valve leakage can have profound consequences, leading to issues like loss of product, compromised product quality, and safety hazards. Our Airlock Double-Dump Valves are engineered with precision to mitigate the risk of valve leakage effectively.

A critical design feature that sets these valves apart is their robust sealing mechanism that creates a secure barrier against leakage. The materials used in these seals are carefully selected to withstand harsh conditions, ensuring longevity and reliability.

Leakage Classification

Valve leakage is classified into different categories, commonly called leakage classes. 

These classes are standardized to provide a uniform way of assessing and communicating the extent of leakage. Roto-Disc’s airlock double-dump valves adhere to stringent leakage classification standards, ensuring users can make informed decisions about their application.

The International Standards Organization (ISO) has defined several leakage classes, ranging from Class I to Class VI, with each class representing a different level of permissible leakage.

Maximum Leakage Rates

Determining the maximum leakage rates is essential for maintaining process efficiency and compliance with industry standards. Our valves are engineered to deliver exceptional performance with minimal leakage, even under challenging operating conditions.

The maximum leakage rates are influenced by valve size, design, and application factors. Always look for detailed specifications for each valve variant, including information on leakage rates under various conditions. This transparency empowers users to make informed decisions based on their specific operational needs.

While zero leakage is an ideal scenario, it may not always be practical in real-world applications. The goal is to achieve leakage rates that are within acceptable limits for your given process.
