WICHITA, KS – Kice Industries today announced it has introduced the new Kice VJX Airlock to its Rotary Airlock line.
The VJX Airlock offers better performance and reliability than other airlock valves on the market today.
“The patented bearing and seal cartridge allows us to eliminate the need for packing material around the shaft where it passes through the endplate,” said Tim Kice, Kice Industries. “The bearing and seal cartridge not only outperforms traditional packing material, it also eliminates several parts previously required.
This reduction in parts reduces disassembly time greatly which will lead to more uptime, and reduced operating cost.”
The VJX airlock is interchangeable with existing Kice Airlock models and is designed to comply with NFPA 69 requirements.
