Flexible tube diverter valves are used in pneumatic conveying systems to divert bulk material flow from one feeding point to two or more receiving points. Bulk materials in powder, pellet, flake or granular form can be re-routed within pressure conveying and vacuum conveying lines. Flexible tube design with small angular deviation between the inlet and outlet ports provide smooth air and material flow. Since there is no change in cross sectional area through the flex tube diverter valve, pressure drop is kept minimum. Flexible hose and inner surfaces are designed to prevent cross contamination between inlet and outlet ports.
Design Features and Benefits of Flexible Tube Diverter Valves
Heavy duty flexible tube ensures long years of reliable operation
Low pressure drop through the valve due to smooth internal geometry with no lodgement points
DIN or ANSI flanges are available
Can be operated in both directions. Used as diverter valve or converger valve.
Dust free operation
Food grade flexible hose and stainless steel valve body are avaliable for food and sanitary applications
Can be operated by pneumatic piston , electrical drive or manual handle.
Built in limit switches and position indicators to check the valve position.
Optional side inspection door.
Custom designed 2 way outlet and 3 way outlet flexible hose diverter valve models are available.
Atex certified pneumatic conveying flex tube diverter valves are available
Materials in powder, pellet, granular and aggregate form like cement, mining minerals, calcium carbonate, pvc, plastic pellets, plastic powders, polyethylene, alumina, urea, wheat, flour, animal feed, seed, corn, rice, sugar, salt.
