wood chip rotary feederSteel Rotary ValveRWN Rotary Valve – Wood chips & Pellets

The TOREX RWN rotary valve is ideal for the controlled feeding/discharging of wood pellets or chips from silos, hoppers, pneumatic conveying systems, bag filter houses, or cyclones.

The RWN Drop-Through Rotary Valve with square inlet consists of a tubular casing with horizontally mounted rotor of four V-shaped cross section compartments. It is manufactured from wear-resistant HARDOX steel including the sill on the inlet to ensure the cutting of chips into the valve.

The Rotary Valve is equipped with a direct drive. The plate opposite the drive end has an externally placed roller bearing which does not come into contact with the material. The bearing provides high resistance to stress and radial loads.

  • Square inlet dimensions of 150,200,250 & 300mm.
  • Capacities of 5, 10, 15, & 20 L/Rev
  • Working Temperatures from -20°C to + 150°C
  • Designed in accordance with wood fuel as per ONORM M7132, ONORM M7133 and ONORM M7135 Standards.
