Aggregate Diverter – Wisselklep

Gravity Flow Conveying

The Vortex Aggregate Diverter is designed to meet the demanding applications with handling material such as sand, gravel, whole grains, and coal. The optional inlets, chute liners, and bucket liners extend the life of this valve when handling abrasive materials. The diverter’s access panel allows for quicker entry to the interior of the diverter for inspecting and cleaning the valve. The heavy-duty abrasion resistant bucket is also removable through this access panel for service.

Traditional bucket diverter designs subject the bucket and diverter internals to excessive wear. The Vortex Aggregate Diverter incorporates two styles of special service inlets to minimize bucket abrasion. Abrasion-resistant polymer chute liners are utilized to minimize chute wear.
Most bucket diverters do not provide a positive material seal across the closed chute. Gaps between the bucket and chute allow leakage into the “closed” trunking. Innovative durable rubber bucket seals in the Aggregate Diverter provide a positive material seal at the leading edges of the bucket.
The ability to perform maintenance on your valve while in service is a major benefit of this valve. Numerous diverters require removal that causes system downtime. Typically, worn diverters are scrapped rather than repaired resulting in costly equipment replacements. The Aggregate Diverter has a removable access panel allowing for inspection or maintenance of the diverter without removal from service. Replacement of the bucket assembly, polymer chute liners and special service inlet can be accomplished through the access panel opening.
