Rotary valve for bulk solids industry customers

To significantly shorten delivery times for customers of the Americas market, Coperion K-Tron located in Salina, KS USA, will start the US production of Coperion Germany rotary valves type ZRD in Salina. The Coperion brand rotary valves are being added to the full line of Aerolock™ rotary valves that Coperion K-Tron Salina has manufactured for 60 years.

This effort will allow Coperion to deliver and repair valves for the Americas market with significantly shorter delivery times. In fact, standard grey cast iron and stainless steel ZRD rotary valves will be available to customers within 4 to 6 weeks.

The Coperion ZRD rotary valve is specially designed for food, mineral, plastics and chemical applications. The valve is engineered for heavy-duty industrial service with pressure differentials up to 21 psi(g) [1.5 bar(g)] and temperatures up to 212°F [100°C]. The ZRD is often used as a discharging and metering valve for conveying products in powder and granular form.

Coperion and Coperion K-Tron will debut the US-manufactured ZRD rotary valve at this year’s International Powder and Bulk Solids Conference and Exhibition.
