The diverter is placed along the pipeline to conduct the material into two or three different destinations, ensuring smooth, regular and quiet transition of the material along with reduced power consumption.
The diverter’s robust and resistant structure also allows for both indoor and outdoor assembly. Air-Tec System’s diverter valves are suitable for handling materials of any size and can be used with abrasive or fragile materials as well as those that tend to clog.
The diverter has an oscillating tube mounted on two bearings, driven by a pneumatic piston that allows for fully automatic movements in any position. An inflatable seal placed on the head of the oscillating tube is discharged when the tube changes its position and inflates again after the pipe has reached the desired position, which is controlled by limit switches.
