Gravity plug diverter valve is ideal for system installations that require frequent cleaning with minimum downtime. Its design allows fast disassembly in installed location and easy access to all product-contact surfaces. Material flow through the valve is unrestricted with no ledges or dead spots. It can be used for product temperatures ranging from -10 °C up to +80 °C.
Gravity solids handling diverter valves are primarily used to handle powders, dry solids and slurries, although some types are available that can handle liquid service. Diverter valves are processing valves designed to direct flow from an inlet to one of two or more outlets. They can also be used for flow control and to converge two lines into one. They are ideal for applications where the conveying or pumping of materials to multiple vessels or silos is needed. These valves are useful in flow control and pipeline circuits, as they may be operated in conjunction with other valves allowing for medium-to-high flow switching or metering control.
Gravity strainers are in use polishing white water for shower, removing felt hairs from recycled press water, on pulp mill applications, on deckers, stock washers and on save alls-even on mill influent systems. Benefits include substantial energy and water savings, highly effective fiber and solids removal and reliable operation even when upsets and slugs occur.
