Lorenz 3 Way Diverter Valves...

Lorenz 3 Way Diverter Valves

Sizes range from 2″ OD up to 8″ OD in a variety of configurations. A lightweight aluminium sealed housing and polished stainless steel blade provide durability and corrosion resistance plus positive sealing. Double acting, internal magnetic, cushioned air cylinder and choice of solenoids allow custom configurations. Unobstructed flow improves system performance and product degradation. Choices of inlet & outlet materials and coupling connections enhance the flexibility of the valve. Industry compatible sizing make replacement of current valves quick & easy. Component parts are stocked ready for assembly & shipping. All valves come fully tested ready to install.

Gravity vee diverter

The Salina Vortex Gravity Vee Diverter incorporates a dual gate design permitting material flow to be open or shut off to either or both outlets. “Live loaded” net running seals provide a positive material seal across the closed port(s). Diversion may be made on the flow material without material product carryover. It is also available in stainless steel construction. Salina Vortex applies their valves based on 25 years of proven experience.
