Rotary Valves and ATEX

Truduct’s JK range of fabricated rotary valves have recently under gone some design improvements in the mounting of the geared motor and rotor drive arrangement.

Now incorporating an external coupling in the drive assembly and a “stand off” bracket for mounting the gearbox the new design provides increased protection to the gearbox against dust or temperature from within the valve.

The internal chamber of the valve is ATEX zone 20 certified.
Standard units are supplied with non-Atex motors although special Atex zone 22 Geared Motors are available and can be supplied at additional cost.

Overall dimensions and flange sizes remain the same thus retaining interchangeably between old and new models
