Plug Diverter Valves
Plug Diverters are heavy-duty alternatives to the flap type conveying diverter. They have an internal plug that rotates 150 degrees to reroute product from one leg to the other. The round hole in the plug matches the round blow through ports, making for a very smooth transition. The units work well on applications with large particles that may get caught in a flap type diverter, causing leakage to the dead leg. As there is no rubber seal, the plug diverter is well suited to more abrasive products. A pneumatic rotary actuator is used to rotate the plug as standard, but can also be supplied with an electric actuator or hand crank. The units come standard with spigots as specified by the customer: flangd, OD tube or nominal pipe. Sizes available are: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 inch.
