Diverter Valves

Application of diverter valves

Diverter valves are used to convert a single line into two lines or vice versa. Recommended to divert a product to different destinations.

Diverter valve operation

Operation using a Y to which two valves are mounted to select the desired path by opening one valve and closing the other. It is comprised of a Y-shaped pipe and 2 sleeve or ball valves.

Advantages of Diverter Valves

The characteristics of each diverter valve depend on the materials to be conveyed. Y diverters are much cheaper than commercial drums. However, they can retain product remains inside, which would cause contamination between different products that pass through the same channel. To minimise this problem, blower inlets are installed to clean the contaminated areas.
These are easy to use as only the opening and closing of each channel need to be controlled.
Maintenance is minimal and simple, requiring only periodic checks of element wear.

Technical characteristics

There are different formats of diverter valves. These may be constructed in-house or commercially available; the latter may use rotary drums to eliminate the valves. Measurements vary according to the pipe to be used and if they are treated. They may be coated internally with anti-wear materials to minimise abrasion.
