Wear Resistant Airlock Packages

Extend Airlock Life

Let Schenck Process increase the life of your airlock and your profit with wear resistant packages.

Wear is difficult to control, as there are many types and different ways to combat it. At Schenck Process, we examine and study wear patterns to find a solution that will extend the life of your airlock.

Wear of a few thousandths of an inch on a rotor or housing can cause conveying air leakage. This results in a less efficient conveying system and decreased production levels, leading to higher energy costs.

Schenck Process welcomes the opportunity to inspect your worn airlock for assessing wear patterns and to recommend an ideal wear resistant option. We document the wear history of your airlock and use that information to evaluate life cycles, recommend Preventative Maintenance Programs and improve your process.

Are you looking for a way to reduce power consumption?  Alston Equipment can show you how with the MCF PowerSaver dust collector.

Posted by Rebecca Alston on Apr 12, 2019 12:04:43 PM
MCF PowerSaver
  • A filter that can save up to 50% of operational costs by using medium pressure air for the cleaning cycle.
  • The MCF’s integrated blower provides the 0.49 bar medium pressure air for cleaning which eliminates the need for plant compressed air in the filter and frees up existing compressed air capacity for use in other processes.
    • Excellent operation capabilities in high dust load applications and in explosive atmospheres
    • Good for operation in high temperatures 465°F (240°C) and higher.
    • Cleaning capacities over 250,000 CFM (425,000 m³/h).
    • Longer Bag Life – precision cleaning by the MCF PowerSaver prevents over cleaning and ensures that bag life is uniform and maximized.
    • Lower Emissions – medium-pressure pulse complemented by precision cleaning has proven to have much lower emissions than reverse air cleaning filter systems.
    • Lower Operating Costs – medium-pressure, high volume air is cheaper to generate than low pressure, reverse air systems. The MCF PowerSaver can save as much as 50% in operating costs through this functionality alone.
    • Lower Maintenance Costs – the MCF PowerSaver’s “no tool design” bag change-out saves hundreds of hours of installation and maintenance over the life of the filter.

Typical applications for the MCF PowerSaver Dust Collector include:
