Wye Line Diverter Directs Dry Bulk Material
Vortex Valves North America — a division of Salina Vortex Corporation — introduces its Quantum Series 3-Way Wye Line Diverter specifically engineered to handle dry bulk solids in pneumatic conveying systems with vacuum or positive pressures up to 15 PSIG (1 barg). The Quantum Series 3-Way Wye Line Diverter, available in two-inch to eight-inch (50mm to 200mm) pipe or tube, can direct dry bulk material from one source to three destinations or converge from three sources to one destination.
Vortex utilizes precision laser cutting and bending technology to manufacture the diverter valve. It provides a number of advantages over traditional flapper and rotating tunnel style diverters and eliminates trouble spots inherent in these conventional diverters. The wye line diverter provides sealing, low installation weight, fast “in-line” maintenance and long-term, reliable service.
The Quantum Series Wye Line Diverter provides positive shutoff of air and material, which improves process efficiency, minimizes cross contamination and eliminates material buildup beyond the closed port. Adapting the Vortex Quantum Series Wye Line Diverter to meet system requirements is made easy with a selection of actuators, position indication switches, flanges and tube stubs. The Quantum Series 3-Way Wye Line Diverter also offers a variety of modifications to accommodate high or low temperatures, corrosive, humid and hazardous environments.
