Flap type pneumatic conveying diverter valves are designed to divert flow of bulk solids within pneumatic conveying lines. Bulk materials in powder, pellet, flake or granular form are re-routed from one feeding point to two or more receiving points in pressure or vacuum conveying lines. Diverter valves have cast iron or cast aluminium outer body. The small angular deviation between the inlet and outlet ports provide smooth air and material flow. Wear resistant swivel flap is used for diverting the flow inside the valve. It consists of a flexible poliurethane rubber which is sandwiched between two metal plates for better sealing. Changes in cross sectional area are kept minimum through the valve to reduce pressure drop in the conveying line. Pneumatic conveying diverter valve can be actuated while bulk material is being conveyed.
