Torex Plug Diverter Valve – VAS

Known as the most compact, simplest and fastest diverter valve on the market. VAS Plug Diverter Valves are used in both positive and negative pressure pneumatic conveying lines.

Torex Plug Diverter Valve - VAS

VAS Plug Diverter Valves consist of a cast aluminium casing and cover, an inlet and two outlets. The rotating internal plug optionally closes one of two outlets which are connected with pneumatic conveying ducts.

Rotation of the internal plug is activated by a pneumatic actuator.

Perfect sealing is guaranteed by internal sliding seals.

The design of the VAS Plug Diverter Valve enables application in any conveying direction. Its technical features make it particularly suitable for applications in the flour milling industry. The change from one tubular exit to another, thus diverting material flow, is controlled by a pneumatic actuator.
