Rotary Vane Gravity Diverter Valve

Rotary Vane Diverter Valve

rotaryVaneDivsmall Rotary Vane Gravity Diverter ValveThe Rotary Diverter Valves are designed for mounting on a gravity discharge line were each diversion leg is offset 30° or 45° from the straight through leg and were cross over dusting is minimized.

The Young Industries, Inc. Rotary Vane Diverter Valves, are used in a wide variety of gravity flow bulk material applications were a minimum dusting between the legs is acceptable. The Rotary Vane Diverter Valves are designed with the diversion legs offset either 30° or 45° from the inlet leg.
Flange Mounted Bearing provide a smooth operation.
“O” ring seals on each end of the vane shaft prevent dust leakage to the exterior. The flange mounted bearing provide smooth and rugged operation.
The Rotary Vane Diverter Valve is offered 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 Rotary Vane 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 vane shaft, eliminating stress to the valve components. This keeps production loss, downtime and maintenance cost to a minimum.
As a result, the Young Industries, Rotary Vane Diverter Valves have been proven to provide superior performance and reliability in a wide range of bulk materials handling applications, and offer a low cost of ownership.

Rotary Vane Diverter Valve Application Information

  • The Rotary Vane Diverter Valves are designed for mounting on a gravity discharge line to divert each leg 30° or 45° from the straight inlet leg and were cross over dusting is minimized.
  • The Young Industries, Inc. Rotary Vane Diverter Valves, are used in a wide variety of gravity flow bulk material applications were material needs to be diverted 30° or 45° from the inlet leg and were a minimum dusting between the legs is acceptable. The diverter vane is constructed with flexible urethane seal.
  • The Rotary Vane 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 Rotary Vane Diverter Valve are offered. One model has 30° diversion leg offset, and the other has a 45° diversion leg. The change of direction is accomplished by changing the position of the vane from one line to the other by a rotary actuator.
  • The Rotary Vane Diverter Valve has heavy construction along, and the valve’s actuator is direct coupled to the vane shaft . This arrangement distributes torque directly to the vane shaft, eliminating stress to the valve components. This keeps production loss, downtime and maintenance cost to a minimum.
