Schenck Process’s PST30 diverter valve is designed to prevent contamination and provide lineswitching for either dilute or dense phase conveying.

The PST30 comes standard with internally shim-able positive stops, inflatable pneumatic seals at each port, position indication from the tunnel itself, and external tunnel position indication. Additional features include 145° port-to-port rotation combined with the ability to switch between dilute or dense phase conveying. The housing, plug, and endplates on the aluminum valve are hard-anodized for wear resistance. A pneumatic actuator provides a four-second actuation time between ports.

To complete the unit, a four-way double and three-way single solenoid air control valve with NEMA 4 enclosure, and two SPST proximity sensors, are included.

A version without inflatable seals is also offered.
