We found that the simple flap type diverter is prone to leakage after a very few operations so we make a valve with a pair of slide gate valves mounted in a 'Y' shaped body.
Careful design produces a swirl action in the body which in turn ensures complete clean out at the end of a run. The body can be manufactured in a variety of materials, usually mild or stainless steel, and the configuration of the ‘Y' can be made with equal angles on the arms or one line going straight through and the other branching off.
The Slide Gate Valves have stainless steel bodies and gates with resilient seats to give good air sealing. The slides and seats are protected from erosion by the shape of the main body and, for abrasive materials, we add a Bisalloy wear plate ahead of the valve seats.
The Diverter Valves are offered with manual, pneumatic or electric operation. A range of options are available including - solenoid valves, with or without reed switches, microswitches and special surface finishes.
Bulk Materials Handling | Flow Control Equipments & Valves
Bulk Materials Handling was established many years ago to manufacture Quality Equipment for the Manufacturers and users of Powders and granules in this Country. The founder despaired of the equipment available and as he was a leading Contractor, wanted his projects to perform over many years with minimal maintenance.
Industries served include CEMENT, FOOD, COAL, RESCOUCES including Woodchip, Mining, Quarrying ENVIRONMENTAL including dust collection, waste water treatment.
FLOW CONTROL EQUIPMENTS by BMH are : Rotary Valves - Extensive range, Pneumatic handling, Gyratory Bin Discharger (Bin Activator), Diverter Valve for Pneumatic Conveying Lines, Pot Type Diverter Valve, Gravity Diverter Spout, Live Bottom Bins, Telescopic Truck Loader Spout, Double Flap Valves, Slide Gate Valve, Security Slide Gate, Rotary Shut Off Valve
TRANSPORT AND PORTABLE SILOS: Stainless Steel Semi Bulk Containers for Liquids and Powders
