Gravity Vee Diverter Handling Trona Ore

Size & Weight: 18” (457 mm) – 700 lbs. (317 kg)

Handling: Trona Ore

Location: Trona Mine, Western USA

Features: The Vortex Titan Gravity Vee Diverter features a dual cylinder design where pneumatic cylinders are located on either side of the outlet instead of one cylinder at the end of the gate. This design shortens the gate’s overall length, allowing for easier installation in tight quarters.

Each gate is independently actuated, providing added flexibility to the operation. Both gates can be closed. One gate can be open while the other is closed. Both gates can be open to allow flow to both destinations simultaneously.

Wetted parts are constructed of abrasion resistant steel (400 BHN) to address material wear.

Application: In this application the ore is routed through various processes where it becomes soda ash and baking soda.
