Flow Diverter Handles Abrasive Materials

Vortex Valves’ Titan Series TLD Diverter is designed for use in gravity flow applica-tions where abrasive material is diverted from one source to either two or three des-tinations, and is claimed to be an ideal solution for applications that require a pos-itive seal from dust and fine powders. The TLD diverter is engineered to channel the flow of material away from the leading edge of the flapper vane. This feature is critical to maintain seal integrity and inhib-it material leakage across the closed legs of the valve. Competitive flapper diverters have a tendency to leak past the vane shaft and trap material underneath, the TLD includes a shaft seal to eliminate this prob-lem. To extend the life of the diverter, the TLD has abrasion-resistant liners that can be replaced when needed. The TLD also comes standard with two removable access panels for inspection, cleaning and main-tenance. Adapting the valve to a system is made easy with position indication switch-es and flanges. The valve also offers a wide variety of modifications to accommodate a range of temperatures, corrosive, humid and explosive environments. Many material construction options are available.
