Mexican Magnesium Oxide Plant Production Increases Because of Plattco Valves


This Magnesium oxide plant in Mexico purchased many Plattco double flap airlock valves in 2004. Since installing the Plattco valves on their cyclones, economizers, and kiln feed, their production increased 10% because the superior Plattco valve seal does not allow false ambient air to enter the system, and therefore the efficiency of the burning process improves dramatically.

Material: Magnesium Oxide & Dolomite

Capacity: 41 cubic feet per hour

Temperature: 1112ºF
