16.25 x 24 inches
400 x 600 mm
Location: Grain Elevator in Indiana
Features: This diverter valve was made with 2 rectangular dual-cylinder Titan Slide Gates. Both gate valves are lined with Kryptane® red to address the abrasiveness of soybeans. By using red Krytpane as liners, the divert valve will wear at a much slower rate extending the service life of the valve for the grain elevator.
Why: The new Vortex diverter valve will replace a flapper diverter that was causing the company maintenance issues and downtime. The dual-cylinder design will allow direct replacement within the existing footprint of the old diverter. As a an added bonus, the new diverter will allow the grain elevator to control material flow through both outlets simultaneously, one outlet at a time, or a compete shut-off.
Diverter Valve Weight = 1200 lb / 540 kg
