Pebco’s bucket diverter is ideal for applications when material must continue to flow through a diverter unit, but the unit must change positions without creating a “plugged chute” situation. The bucket design eliminates product leakage to the closed leg without the use of elastomer seals which minimizes maintenance, while providing smooth flow surfaces that eliminate material build up and possible cross contamination from carryover when shifting the diverter. In addition, the “drop in” design of inlet throat and “slide out” design of the bucket minimize replacement time and simplifies maintenance requirements. The bucket diverter is available in a two-way and three-way diverter configuration and has been successfully applied in many frac sand, potash, phosphate rock, coal, ore, and wood chip/pellet applications.
