Vortex Gravity Vee Diverter Replaces Flapper Diverter

Materials can flow individually or both outlets simultaneously or both closed

Application:
Vortex’s client previously utilised a flapper diverter to handle baking flour. This was problematic because, depending on the position of the blade, material was constantly flowing through one of the outlets. With the Vortex Gravity Vee Diverter, materials can flow toward either outlet individually, both outlets simultaneously, or both closed for material shut-off.

Features:
* Dual cylinder gate design.
* Diverter body, blade & material contact areas constructed from 316L stainless steel.
* Seals constructed from PET polymer, for food-grade product safety.
* 24 in | 610 mm round inlet transition, to connect with a hopper above. Inlet transition * features 12 fluidizer pads to assist material flow.
* Round, 12 in | 305 mm, ANSI flange outlet transitions, to match the client’s pre-existing footprint.
* Pre-wired terminal box. Set up for a Class II, Div I (Groups E, F, G) environment.

This dual cylinder Gravity Vee Diverter was manufactured from 316 stainless steel. The inlet contains a 610mm round hopper and the outlets are transitioned to match the install footprint. The diverter’s dual cylinder design is intended for use in limited space installations. By side-mounting the actuators, the gate’s overall length is shortened by a third.

HDPV2 Gate Handling Dry, Colored Pigment
HDPV2 Gate Handling Dry, Colored Pigment
Special slide gates were required for this application. Because of the solvent nature of vapors created in the mix tank below, it was unacceptable for the sourced valve to feature silicone rubber seals. In addition, all switches and solenoids had to be rated for hazardous duty (NEMA 7/9). The Vortex HDPV2 Gate met each of these requirements. The gate’s unique “lifting” action of the blade seating into a top-mounted o-ring offers many advantages over traditional knife gate valves that pack and jam material into an end seal. A Class II / Div. 1 pre-wired terminal box was also provided to meet the client’s hazardous duty standards. Two years after installation, one of the gates was handling red pigment when it experienced a slight blade sticking problem. To solve the issue, Vortex supplied quick exhaust valves that were installed on the gate’s air cylinder actuator to increase the speed of the gate’s opening stroke.

Vortex Seal Tite Diverter Handles Pet Food Kibbles
Vortex Seal Tite Diverter Handles Pet Food Kibbles
A pet food manufacturer needed to divert kibble dry food from a feeder into one of two disc conveyors, which transports the kibbles to the packaging line. Vortex engineered several 254mm Seal Tite Diverters constructed from stainless steel for the pet food company. The four Vortex Seal Tite Diverters feature a removable access door that allows inspection, maintenance and repairs to be performed without removing the diverter from service. The Seal Tite Diverters also feature removable parts. For return-on-investment purposes, this feature is beneficial because it allows for the replacement of worn parts, rather than full diverter replacement. The Seal Tite Diverters are designed so that the leading edge of the blade actuates into a recessed area. This protects the blade’s seals from the material flow stream, which would otherwise cause them to wear and allow material leakage into the closed diverter leg. The client is very pleased with the performance
