Replace Rotary Valves to Improve Performance

When a wood waste-to-electricity power plant began replacing rotary valves on their flyash baghouse in 2004, the facility realized a significant reduction in turbulence in the baghouse above the valves, an increase in bag life by many years and lower emissions. The plant manager credits Plattco's Pollution Control Valves (PCV) and their superior ability to seal over the rotary valves.

In another example, since installing Plattco PCVs on their cyclones and economizers, production at a Magnesium Oxide plant in Mexico noticed more than a 10% production increase because the superior seal of the Plattco valves won't allow false ambient air to enter the system -- improving dramatically the eciency of the burning process.
