Three directions of diversion.

The new three-way model of the Seal Tite Gravity Diverter utilizes the same features as the two-way Seal Tite, according to Salina Vortex Corp., and can be used in gravity-flow applications to divert the flow of dry bulk material from a single source to any of three destinations. The design of the diverter directs material flow away from the leading edge of the flapper vane, and an access door allows replacement of the flapper vane or seal, if necessary, without the removal of the diverter.

Available in 4- to 18-inch square sizes (square to round transitions are available), the three-way Seal Tite Gravity Diverters are constructed of carbon steel or stainless steel, and can be ordered with an air cylinder actuator, electric linear actuator, chain wheel, or hand lever actuator.

The company adds that a live-loaded polymer shaft contains and seals material around the vane shafts, eliminating cross-contamination of materials to the off leg. An optional "clean-in-place" access panel with spin knobs allows access to the interior of the diverter for inspection, cleaning, or sanitation purposes.
