HPE backfill diverter valves, supplied in Australia by Upwey Valve & Engineering , are used to divert the flow of backfill material from one point of placement to another.

These diverter valves can also be used to divert flush water away from a placement point when pipes are flushed at the end of a backfill placement cycle, ensuring backfill material is not diluted or washed away by flush water.

Manual operation is achieved with a lever-type handle that has been engineered to deliver a shock impact, diverting flow if the valve becomes stuck or if pressure is higher than normal.

With a maximum working pressure of 3.5 MPa, these flow valves also feature:

  • a 65mm bore
  • simplified cleaning and repair maintenance
  • drain valve port to indicate when flush water reaches the valve; and
  • flanges to suit customer requirements.
