Coperion K-Tron Diverter Valves for Pneumatic Conveying Applications

Coperion K-Tron Diverter Valves direct material from one source to multiple destinations. The cylindrical, cast housing provides a smooth, low resistance path for the conveying air and material.

One outlet is in line with the inlet, and the other is offset 30 degrees. The diverter valve is ideal for use in pressure systems.

Pneumatic Conveying Diverter Valve Features

  • Single or double solenoid
  • Magnetic proximity proof switches for both gate positions
  • Abrasion protector extends the life of the polyurethane seal
  • Low pressure drop minimizes velocity change through valve
  • Enclosure ratings of IP56 NEMA 4X and NEMA 9 are standard, with NEMA 7 optional

Diverter Valve Materials of Construction

Diverter Valves are available with the housing constructed of iron, aluminum, or stainless steel. The cast metal diverting gate is offered in carbon or stainless steel. A polyurethane flapper, retained between the two halves of the metal diverting gate, seals the unused leg of the valve during operation.

Diverter valve Sizes, Options

Diverter Valves are available for 2", 3", 4", 5", and 6" O. D. tube and pipe line sizes. They may be equipped with either manual, motorized, or air-cylinder actuators. The unit is designed to function efficiently when installed in a series with other valves, and may be installed at any angle. The valve operates at pressures up to 1.4 bar [20 PSIG] and temperatures up to 93° C [200° F].
