Wye Line Diverter Replaces Inconsistent Flap Diverters

Flour Milling Company in East Jawa, Indonesia

It is not unusual for a flour mill to have problems with in-line flap diverters when installed in a pneumatic conveying system. The soft seals around the flap are exposed to direct blast abrasion from grist or wheat flour. This can create significant pressure drops in the conveying system, as well as line plugs once product is allowed to pass through the closed leg of the diverter.

A flour milling company was experiencing these problems with the in-line flap diverters purchased when the mill was built. The product leakage from the diverters was creating conveying inefficiencies and significant downtime to uninstall the flap diverter and remove line plugs. The milling company decided to install Vortex Wye Line Diverters, which are ideally designed to overcome common problems associated with in-line flap diverters.

The wye line design features a stainless steel sliding blade while maintaining a positive seal when the ports are closed. The diverter is also capable of shifting material flow while the system’s blower or vacuum pump continues to operate. The lightweight valve can be installed horizontal or vertical and is serviceable while in-line, saving the customer valuable downtime.

Tea time for Vortex’s wye line diverter Wye Line Diverter handles delicate tea leaves
Tea time for Vortex’s wye line diverter
Wye Line Diverter handles delicate tea leaves Tea and coffee merchants, Taylors of Harrogate, recruited Vortex a few years ago to assist in improving a tea transfer system at their North Yorkshire, UK plant. Staff at the Vortex Darlington office were contacted by Taylors, who had identified the Wye Line Diverter from the Vortex website as a potential alternative for their tea transfer system. Taylors were then visited by Vortex representatives just 90 minutes after this initial enquiry. At the plant, the blended tea was transferred to each packaging machine by a dedicated vacuum system. The project was to combine these two systems into one, reducing the number of vacuum pumps and pipework whilst not affecting the quality, taste or structure of the tea in any way. Following the decision that the 2-Way Wye Line Diverters offered the best solution to reduce costs and energy consumption, Taylors were able to test a set of four diverters on a trial basis for several weeks. At the end of this period, Taylors
