New Global Cleanable Airlock (GCA) from Schenck Process is designed for sanitary processes
The new Global Cleanable Airlock (GCA) from Schenck Process is ideal for applications where dry raw or finished products are being handled in the process and where inspection or system clean-out are required.
As the GCA is designed for high process rates and possesses a number of features suited for sanitary processes, the airlock is perfect for food applications like sugar, cocoa, coffee and flour amongst others.
Two models of the GCA consist of a standard and a demountable unit. The standard model is a round inlet, round outlet rotary valve which incorporates seals and product contact surfaces which meet food safety requirements. The demountable unit is designed with a rail system that simplifies removal of the endplate/rotor assembly from the housing providing access to the internal valve cavity, rotor pockets and all other product contact areas for quick and easy cleaning.
Other key features of the GCA Airlock include its mostly stainless steel construction, easy access to seals with rotor removed from endplate; and its housing and endplates designed for 10 Bar explosion shock resistance. Apart from these, it is also made of FDA and EC 1935/2004 approved materials of construction in product contact areas. Its oversized rotor shaft also creates a naturally radiused rotor pocket for more complete product release.
