Kice Industries has introduced larger sizes for its popular VJX airlock. The new sizes available include 18x12x12; 18x14x14; 20x12x12; 20x15x15; 24x15x15, and 24x20x20. The VJX airlock gives users less maintenance, reduced downtime and lower overall operating costs. It is designed to comply with NFPA 69 criteria as a passive isolation device. The patented bearing cartridge design bolts to the endplate for ease of assembly and maintenance.
A maintenance-free Teflon seal and triple quad-ring seals to protect bearings from product contamination are standard, and there are no packing seals to tighten or replace. With fewer parts and an improved seal, the VJX airlock can withstand higher operating pressures without maintenance, significantly reducing downtime and overall operating costs.
