Diverter Valves

Diverter Valve

Diverter valves direct bulk solids into different destinations as part of a dilute or dense phase pneumatic conveying system. Typically, they help convey material from one source to two destinations.

Inquip supply a wide range of Diverter Valves by WAM that provide solutions for virtually every problem of material flow diversion in bulk solids conveying and processing.

Product Range

  • Diverter Valves for Pneumatic Conveying Lines – VAD
  • Drum-type Diverter Valves for Pneumatic Conveying – VAR
  • Flap Diverter Valves – VAB
  • Plug Diverter Valves – VAS
  • Diverter Flap Valves – DVA

Diverter Valves for Pneumatic Conveying Lines – VAD

VAD Diverter Valves consist of an aluminium die-cast casing and a swivel flap that closes one duct or the other. Internal sealing of the body is achieved through low friction gaskets.
Specific surface treatment is available to make the valves suitable for operation with different materials.

Benefits of Diverter Valves for Pneumatic Conveying Lines – VAD

  • Lightweight design
  • Compact overall dimensions
  • Easy to install
  • Maintenance-friendly

Drum Type Diverter Valves for Pneumatic Conveying – VAR

VAR Diverter Valves consist of a cast aluminium casing and cover, an inlet and two outlets. The rotating internal drum optionally closes one of two outlets which are connected with pneumatic conveying ducts.
Rotation of the internal drum is activated by a pneumatic actuator.
Perfect sealing is guaranteed by internal, pneumatically inflatable seals.

Benefits of Drum Type Diverter Valves for Pneumatic Conveying – VAR

  • Standard inflatable seals
  • Lightweight and compact overall dimensions thanks to aluminium-cast design
  • Minimum pressure drop thanks to special design features
  • Works in both directions as diverter or converter
  • Contamination-free
  • Maintenance-friendly

Flap Diverter Valves – VAB

The VAB Flap Diverter Valve uses a swinging flap to divert material from one duct to another.
VAB Flap Diverter Valves are fitted on pneumatic conveying ducts in which switching the flow of material to different production lines is required.

Benefits of Flap Diverter Valves – VAB

  • Easy to use as diverter or converter
  • Narrow diverting angle of 22.5°
  • Low pressure drop due to minimum transition effect
  • Smooth internal surface (no dead spots)
  • Modular design and easy maintenance thanks to limited number of components
  • Lightweight and compact overall dimensions

Plug Diverter Valves – 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.

Benefits of Plug Diverter Valves – VAS

  • Adjustable and Easy to Use as Diverter or Converter
  • Lightweight and compact overall dimensions
  • Easy to install
  • Maintenance-friendly
  • Actuator assembly on either side of the casing
  • Nickel-plated Version to increase resistance to corrosion and higher surface hardness
  • Food-grade sliding seals grants perfect sealing
  • Visual arrow showing material flow direction

Diverter Flap Valves – DVA

DVA-type Diverter Flap Valves consist of a casing made up of two high-pressure die-cast semi-bodies manufactured from aluminium alloy, lined with SINT engineering polymer, and a SINT engineering polymer flap. The flap is either activated by a manual lever, a pneumatic or an electric actuator. 

Features of Diverter Flap Valves – DVA

  • Wear-resistant, replaceable SINT engineering polymer liner for minimised chute wear
  • SINT engineering polymer valve components for standard or food-grade applications
  • Contact between diverter flap and body SINT liner ensures dustproof sealing
  • Manual lever, pneumatic or electric actuator
