Diverter Gate Valve is used for selecting one out of two outlet ports. The flow through these valves is essentially a gravity flow and the position of the diverter flap decides which of the two outlet ports will be active. DEMECH manufactures & supplies these fabricated valves as per customers’ requirements.
Diverter valves are designed to direct product flow outlets of storage bins, silo conveyors, gravity flow chutes and other discharge points handling powders, granules, grains and other bulk solids. These valves are available in deflector or diverter types, with three-positional control on diverter if required to split the flow.
The splitting of flow can be achieved by positioning the diverter flap in an intermediate position. However, middle position will not necessarily mean equal splitting of flow as the location of valve and material flow characteristic can influence the flow splitting ratio.
DEMECH also manufactures “Trivertor Gate Valves”, which is a variation on Diverter gate valves having three possible outlets instead of two.
As the name suggests, Diverter Gate Valves are used to determine the outflow of bulk, free flowing material from a vessel bin. The vessel could be hoppers, silos, bag filter, bins etc. and the feeder can be any type of bulk material conveyor.
