Kwik-Klean Sanitary Rotary Airlock Valve

The Kwik-Klean® rotary airlock valves are designed for fast and simple disassembly and re-assembly, allowing for a quick inspection, clean-up, and maintenance without the use of tools or removal of the valve from service. The valves use hand-tightened fasteners to secure the headplate to the housing. With the headplate and rotor conveniently removed, the entire housing interior is accessible. Reassembly takes just minutes and internal clearances are automatically reestablished every time.

The valves are available in different design levels incorporating cast iron, stainless steel, or polished sanitary construction.
