Vortex Pivoting Chute Diverter Receives Processing Magazine's Breakthrough Product Award 2016

The Vortex Pivoting Chute Diverter has been named one of Processing Magazine's Breakthrough Products for 2016.

Vortex developed the Pivoting Chute Diverter for handling heavy-duty and/or abrasive dry materials in gravity flow applications. Such materials include industrial sand, limestone, coal, gypsum, clinker, gravel, bauxite, whole grains, and minerals. The diverter body houses a chute that pivots to direct material flow toward two or three destinations.

The main advantages of the Pivoting Chute Diverter are:

  • There are no internal seals to maintain.
  • It is constructed from and is lined with durable metal materials (e.g. abrasion-resistant steel and/or chromium carbide, among others) to address abrasion from the material(s) handled.
  • Its removable access panel allows inspection and/or maintenance to be performed while the valve remains in-line.
  • It is dust-tight to atmosphere.
  • The chute can pivot through a flowing column of materials, depending on material particle size.
  • The chute can be pivoted to a midpoint, in order to split flow toward two destinations simultaneously. (Note: Because flow is shared from one source toward two destinations, flow rates toward each leg will be reduced, compared to typical one-to-one flow rates.)
