Wye Line Diverter for Powder, Pellets, Granules

April 29, 2014

The Vortex Quantum Series wye line diverter is designed to direct powder, pellets, or granules from one source to multiple destinations, or converge from varied sources to one destination. Unlike common flap or plug diverters, these wye line diverters offer a wide range of dilute-phase and vacuum pneumatic conveying options, and can be serviced without taking the valve out of the production line. The wye line design features a stainless steel sliding blade while maintaining a positive seal when the ports are closed. The diverter is capable of shifting directions “on the fly” while the system’s blower or vacuum pump continues to operate.  If installed near a destination point, the diverter may also shear through material to facilitate continuous conveying. The lightweight valve can be installed horizontal or vertical. All Vortex products can be modified to accommodate handled material, footprint size, and factory environments.
