Plattco has been very responsive to the customer’s needs and a partnership has formed to ensure the baghouse and Plattco Airlock Valves run at peak performance.
Our Airlock technology improves baghouse efficiency by maintaining the integrity of the internal vacuum pressure of the baghouse. In turn, this allows the conveyance of heavier particulates to drop and discharge at its hopper outlet below.
Plattco’s Airlock valves extend baghouse life by extending the life of the filters situated inside the compartment of the baghouse. This allows the intended “discharge” material to drop down to the Plattco valve and be conveyed.
Plattco’s proven Airlock decreases ID fan consumption by reducing the amount of electrical consumption needed for the ID fan to maintain its vacuum for the baghouses.
Plattco’s Airlock extends ID fan life by reducing the amount of particulate that makes its way back to the ID fan from tramp/false air leakage.
Plattco’s Double Flap Airlock Valve reduced tramp/false air that would otherwise make it into the baghouse system. False air can shorten the life of the baghouse and its wear components, plus shorten the life of the ID fan by wear due to increased material contact at a higher suction velocity.
