Line diverters

November 1, 2011


Used to replace existing manual hose switching stations, Vortex multi-port wye line diverter valves converge or divert materials from one or more sources to one or more destinations. Available in 2- through 8-in. pipe or tube sizes, the diverters can route non-abrasive to moderately abrasive materials, such as granules, pellets and powders. Upon installation, they interface directly with the user’s PLC; the only manual operation is hooking up the inlet of the diverter to the railcar or other source. An operator accesses and directs the switching and/or loading operation through a computer touch screen from inside the facility.
