The new SPTD plug diverter has a single straight pipe and will be available in sizes from 150 mm (6”) up to 400 mm (16”). The straight pipe diverter is very suitable for applications in the food, pet food, plastics and petrochemical industries. DMN-Westinghouse will introduce the new SPTD on their stands at the Powtech in Nuremberg (H9-114) and the PTXi/Powdershow in Chicago (stand 1228). The design of the SPTD plug diverter conforms to all current legislation regarding safety in the workplace. Consequently there are no moving parts on the outside. The new SPTD has been designed to be user friendly, pressure shock resistant and with standard static seals suitable for pressures up to 3 bar g. All sizes are optionally available with inflatable seals. The DMN-Westinghouse sptd has been specially designed to route powders and pellets with minimum degradation in pneumatic conveying systems. A smooth passage of product is guaranteed by precision machining, very effective sealing and a complete obstruction free passage. The user friendly fool proof design enables fast in situ internal examination, cleaning and, if necessary, replacement of seals. The SPTD plug diverter consists of an aluminium housing and end covers in which a plug with a single straight pipe is installed. All product contact surfaces are made from stainless steel AISI 316. Optionally the product contact parts can be anodized aluminium. Two FDA approved silicone seals guarantee the sealing between housing and plug. The body is pressure tight, so ensuring no leakage to atmosphere. The plug diverter can be used for product temperatures ranging from -25 °C up to +80 °C at ambient temperatures of -10 °C up to +40 °C.
