When you work with rotary valves in a messy application, cleaning can be daunting. It can take hours to take your valve out of service, dismantle it, clean it and put it all back together again.
ACS feels your pain. We don’t like cleaning either, which is why we engineered easy-clean features into our valves. Our Quick-Clean RotorRail™ series provides tool-less, single-step access to the rotor and its internal surfaces. The stainless-steel housing and U-shaped rotor pockets make it easy to wipe down.
To prove it, we dumped a plate of spaghetti into our valve, among other delicious items — which we do not recommend, by the way — and put a timer on to measure the cleanup time.
The result? A Quick-Clean valve cut the cleaning process down from several hours to mere minutes. While the valve works great in sanitary applications, like food and pharmaceuticals, the rail system helps you minimize downtime in a wide range of other applications. The quick, easy method of access makes it a breeze to check your tolerances for NFPA compliance or inspect your valve for damage and wear.
But that’s enough talking — it’s time to show you what our valves can really do. Watch the video to witness the weirdest spaghetti dinner in conveying history (and the fastest cleanup)!Find out more about ACS ValvesClick here for related articles online
