The horizontally mounted rotor with four V-shaped cross section compartments is manufactured from wear-resistant HARDOX steel. A HARDOX sill at the inlet sees to cutting of wood chippings
The feeders are equipped with a direct drive. The plate opposite the drive end is equipped with an externally placed roller bearing which does not come into contact with the material fed. The bearing ensures higher resistance to stress and radial loads.
RW Rotary Valves have been developed for controlled discharging and feeding of wood pellets or chippings from silos, hoppers, pneumatic conveying systems, bag filter houses, or cyclones.
The shape of the rotor blades and the cutting sill at the inlet ensure any wood present in the biofuel mixture will be cut.
Performance & Technical Features - Benefits
Feed rates from 2.2 to 19.5 litres per revolution (0.08 to 0.7 cu ft per revolution)
Different drives for three different rotation speeds (10, 20 or 30 r.p.m.)
Compatible with other WAMGROUP® equipment thanks to WAM® standard flanges
Robust and compact design
HARDOX sill mounted on the feeder inlet cuts pieces of wood thus avoiding locking of the feeder
