3-Way Line Diverters Increase Production

March 12, 2009

Vortex Valves North America – a division of Salina Vortex Corporation – introduces its new, patent-pending, 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 2” to 8” (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 this leading-edge 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 superior 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 improving 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 wide selection of actuators, position indication switches, flanges, and tube stubs. The Quantum Series 3-Way Wye Line Diverter also offers a wide variety of modifications to accommodate high or low temperatures, corrosive, humid, and hazardous environments.
