Blade Divert Valve

Blade Diverter Valve

BladeDiv Blade Divert ValveThe Blade Diverter Valves are designed for mounting on a gravity discharge line to divert product from a single inlet to either one straight through leg or one divert leg. In addition,  crossover dusting is minimized.

The Young Industries, Inc. Blade Diverter Valves, are used in a wide variety of gravity flow bulk material applications were a minimum dusting between the legs is acceptable. The Blade Diverter Valves are designed with one diversion leg offset either 30° or 45° from the inlet leg.
“O” ring seals on each end of the blade shaft prevent dust leakage to the exterior. The flange mounted bearing provide smooth and rugged operation.

The Blade Diverter Valve is offered with either as 30°diversion leg offset or 45° diversion leg offset. The change of direction is accomplished by changing the position of the blade from one line to the other by a rotary actuator.
The Blade Diverter Valve has heavy construction along, and the valve’s actuator is direct coupled to the bucket shaft . This arrangement distributes torque directly to the bucket shaft, eliminating stress to the valve components. This keeps production loss, downtime and maintenance cost to a minimum.

As a result, the Young Industries, Blade Diverter Valves have been proven to provide superior performance and reliability in a wide range of bulk materials handling applications, and offer low cost of ownership.

Blade Diverter Valve Application Information

  • The Blade Diverter Valves are designed for mounting on gravity discharge lines. They are used for diverting material from a single inlet to either a through-leg or to a divert leg. In addition, cross over dusting is minimized.The Young Industries, Inc. Blade Diverter Valves, are used in a wide variety of gravity flow bulk material applications were material needs to be diverted straight through or to a 30° or 45° and were a minimum dusting between the legs is acceptable. The diverter blade is constructed with flexible urethane to provide a seal.
  • The Blade Diverter Valve is designed for a 2 PSIG internal or external pressure. It is available in standard sizes from 4″ through 16″ square flange sizes. Round flange are available.
  • Two Models of the Blade Diverter Valve are offered. One model has 30°diversion leg offset and the other has a 45° diversion leg offset. The change of direction is accomplished by changing the position of the blade from one line to the other by a rotary actuator.
  • The Blade Diverter Valves has heavy construction. The valve’s actuator is direct coupled to the blade shaft . This arrangement distributes torque directly to the bucket shaft, eliminating stress to the valve components. This keeps production loss, downtime and maintenance cost to a minimum.
  • “O” ring seals on each end of the blade shaft prevent dust leakage to the exterior. The flange mounted bearing provide smooth and rugged operation.
  • The Young industries Blade Diverter Valves are available with a variety of features to handle a wide range of process requirements.
