The Vortex Aggregate Diverter is used in gravity flow applications to divert heavy-duty and/or abrasive dry materials from one source toward two destinations. It is available in both traditional (also known as: "Y-type," "pant diverter," or "A-style") and straight-leg (also known as: "straight-through" or "K-style") diverting designs.
- Material contact areas protected by replaceable abrasion-resistant liners. Liners are constructed from durable metal materials (e.g. abrasion-resistant steel and/or chromium carbide, among others). Note: Depending on application, polymer or rubber wear liners may be more effective. Contact us to discuss options.
- Durable rubber bucket seal to prevent material migration into the opposite leg. Rather than adhering thin elastomer seals around the perimeter of the bucket blade, a full rubber sheet is bolted in beneath the bucket blade.
- Removable access panel allows interior inspection and/or maintenance to be performed while the valve remains in-line.
- (Optional) Bucket blade and outlet legs can be equipped with honeycomb/"rock box" liners constructed from 400 Brinell Hardness Number (BHN) abrasion-resistant steel. Materials collect in the honeycomb/"rock box" liners. Once filled, this allows materials passing through the valve to abrade upon themselves, rather than wearing the material contact areas.
- (Optional) Inlet can be equipped with a Special Service Inlet (SSI) constructed from carbon steel. The SSI can feature a dead pocket deflector, which collects a small amount of materials at the inlet flange. This allows materials passing through the valve to abrade upon themselves, rather than wearing the inlet itself.
