The milling and baking industry orders the Blow-Through Aerolock in our Standard 7 configuration. This includes flat-tip rotors and lip seals which are well-accepted in the industry.
Housing and end plates
The housing and end plates are machined from castings and are made of wear iron or chrome-plated wear iron. Square or round inlet/outlet flange patterns available.
Bearings - thrust end
The radial-thrust, tapered roller bearing assembly is preloaded to provide minimum rotor deflection. This results in close rotor clearance to maximize wear life.
Bearings - drive end
The radial ball bearing assembly provides firm shaft support on the drive end and allows expansion and contraction due to temperature changes along the longitudinal axis.
Eight blades maintain a minimum two-blade labyrinth seal to minimize air leakage. The rotors are equipped with relieved tips for materials which form skins or thin sheets on end plates and housing, or non-relieved tips for cereal products. Open-ended rotors are also available.
