It can bolt directly to an aspirator and provides a seal to protect against product leakage. The rotary vane feeder is used to meter product out of storage tanks or into equipment such as multi-aspirators. Sometimes called a blend vane feeder, it provides a constant, volumetric rate of feed. The rotary vane feeders are built with heavy-duty, mild steel for durability.

A robust line charger, the feeder is designed for up to 400°F and 29 psig to feed pneumatic conveying systems more efficiently and at high-pressure differen- tials. The 10-vane open- or closed-end rotor design mini- mizes slip leakage, while efficiently feeding through large inlet/outlet flanged open ings.
