Diverter Gates are all-inclusive utilized in the bulk material processing industry so as to direct the flowing of material in different processing circuits, modulate the quantity of flow to several circuits and also to separate circuits for maintenance. These can be as elementary as a single to double diverter with a non-automatic bar to change the blade point from one side to the other. Also they can act as ample automated devices, which are confident of proportioning the flow from one or more origins to a large figure of finishes. Diverter gates can be of two arrangements reckoning on the attributes of the material being managed. An uncomplicated flat blade diverter is relevant for most materials and is comparatively inexpensive. Moreover, it is simple to install and maintain. For some materials, the non-jamming features and sealing capacities of the rolling blade diverter make it much appropriate.
Construction Material Diverter gates can be constructed from or equipped with a vast range of construction materials reckoning on the attributes of the bulk materials which are to be handle. Some illustrations of construction materials for various applications are:
- Carbon Steel with scrape resistant liners can be exercised for most of the usages.
- Polished stainless steel liners are used to cut down the friction between the bulk material and the gate surface and result in the reduction in the flow troubles.
- Stainless Steel can be employed in all areas in link with acidic material to preclude corrosion. In some cases it may be essential to make the entire gate from stainless seal.
- Plastic and rubber seals and liners can be put-upon for a broad range of design features. For instance, rolling blade gates can exercise rubber seals and both types can be outfitted with internal or external rubber liners for noise suspension.
