Features: This Vortex Aggregate Diverter features a bucket style blade constructed of abrasion resistant steel (400 BHN). The blade is modified to contain a honeycomb “rock box” that initially traps the material handled. Subsequent material conveyed through the diverter impacts on the trapped material rather than wearing out the blade.
Additionally, the inlet contains a dead pocket “rock box” that addresses abrasive material entering the diverter at a slight angle.
Application: The Vortex diverter replaced a flapper diverter that no longer sealed material to the off leg and leaked material to atmosphere through numerous holes that had been worn through the diverter’s body.
