Diverter Valve

July 31, 2013

Vortex Gravity Vee Diverter ValveThe Vortex Gravity Vee Diverter is designed to divert dry bulk solids in a gravity flow conveying system. The design allows for material flow through both outlets simultaneously, one outlet at a time or a complete shut-off of flow. The Gravity Vee Diverter is also capable of metering flow through either outlet port. The dual actuators can be used to divert or stream material. They can also shut off material flow in either or both directions. Traditional “A” valves or flop gates require material flow to be shut off before redirecting the material often requireing an additional knife gate above the “A” valve.
