Rotary valves comparison
feature Gimat rotary valve Standard rotary valve
dimensions Compact and lightweight Large size
Connection Upstream and downstream direct connection by round flange A manifold is required to adapt from square to round flange
Bridge-breaker Entering the upper carpentry, the rotor also has a bridge breaker function, to facilitate material withdrawal The rotary valve doesn't act as a bridge breaker


Useful flow rate: from 2 to 13 m3/h

For those requiring precise dosing capabilities, our rotary valves can be easily controlled using an inverter

Easy cleaning and maintenance, thanks to the compact and lightweight body, featuring a protruding rotor

Specifically crafted for pneumatic conveying systems operating under either depression (maximum -0.5 relative bar) or low pressure (maximum +0.5 relative bar).

With round flanges at the inlet and outlet, our rotary valves are particularly well-suited for vertical installations
