Pivoting Chute Diverter Assists at a Sand Processing Facility

Published: October 19, 2020

Client: Sand Processing Facility, West Texas

Material Handled: Industrial Sand

Size and Weight: 400 mm (16”) – 777 kg (1714 lbs)


This Vortex Two-Way Pivoting Chute Diverter features an internal chute and wear liners constructed of abrasion resistant steel (400 BHN). Lifting lugs provide installation assistance. Once installed, maintenance or replacement of worn parts can be accomplished through an external side panel access without having to remove the diverter.

This is a straight-leg model (SL) incorporating a 45° off-leg. The SL option is preferred when a majority of product is being conveyed to one destination, as less abrasion occurs.


The diverter replaces a competitor’s problematic flapper diverter.
