Rotary airlock valves are also called rotary feeders, rotary valves, or just rotary airlocks. Used in both pressure style and vacuum style pneumatic conveying systems, these valves serve as a "lock" to prevent air loss while simultaneously performing vital material handling functions. Though simple, the rotary airlock valve is a critical component to the efficiency of a conveying system. It's important to remember that not all rotary valves are necessarily rotary airlock valves - but virtually all rotary airlocks are rotary valves.

Keeping equipment properly balanced is crucial in maximizing its usefulness, longevity, and safety. Maintaining optimal balance of rotating components minimizes the need for repairs, cutting both costs and machine downtime. A properly balanced rotating component creates less undue wear-and-tear on bearings and less overall vibration. In fact, improper balancing is a leading cause of rotating equipment failure.

Damper valves are a vital part of any air circulation system. Superior to simple fan control systems of old, damper valves allow for accurate directional flow control. Damper valves can also control the amount of material that is allowed to pass through a system and can work to isolate equipment from gas or air flow.
