Multiport diverter valves also known as multiway diverter valves are used in pneumatic conveying systems to divert bulk material flow from one feeding point to multiple receiving points. Bulk materials in powder, pellet, flake or granular form can be re-routed within pressure conveying and vacuum conveying lines. Multiport diverter design incorporates a rotary tube multiway selector mechanism. A distributor pipe rotates around an axis to connect single inlet port to multiple outlet ports. PLC controlled rotary tube can be positioned to the desired outlet port in short time with maximum sealing. 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 multiport diverter valve, pressure drop is kept minimum. Rotary tube selector and inner surfaces are designed to prevent cross contamination between inlet and outlet ports. Steel piping provides higher pressure and temperature ratings, and is suitable for abbrassive bulk materials.
