Scale Diverter Valves
Scale or Weigh Diverter Valves are a flap type diverter that reroutes product for filling hoppers or silos. With the flaps in the down position, product bypasses the outlet. When actuated, the flaps are lifted and product is rerouted into the hopper. Displaced air in the hopper is carried away through the exhaust port. These type diverters are ideal for convey lines where multiple discharge points are required in series, and are often used to fill hoppers that are being weighed – hence their name. Units are available in Cast Iron, Cast Stainless Steel and Cast Aluminum. Typical operation is via pneumatic air cylinder or electric actuator.
