Diverter Valves

Diverter Valves

Carolina Material Technologies provides a full range of diverter valves.  Diverter valves are used to divert product flow from one inlet to multiple outlets.

These are applied to simple gravity applications (no pressure) and to high-pressure applications.  To avoid plugging, leakage and premature wear it is always critical to divert when product is not flowing through the valve.

Diverter Valves are ideal for handling dry bulk material in gravity flow, dilute phase or dense phase pneumatic conveying applications.


The unique design of the Vortex Flex Tube Diverter eliminates material cross contamination through a positive seal across the closed port.


This switch operates straight through and at 15º.  It can be used both horizontally and vertically, right or left hand switching.  The switch uses an extremely heavy-duty ductile iron casting as the switching medium.  This casting can be quoted 180º to double the life expectancy.  This switch is completely assembled, pre-wired and pre-piped. Good for high pressure conveying

Diverter Valves

In Operation

  1. A pneumatic cylinder pivots, unsealing the discharge end from position 1.
  2. Cylinder two, pivots, moving the internal cast bottler, to position 2.
  3. Cylinder one pivots, sealing the discharge end to position 2.

Diverter Valve Drawing

Diverter Valve - 90 degree


The switch operates straight through or at 90º.  It can be used both horizontally or vertically, right or left hand switching.  It has heavy-duty cast ductile iron housing.  It uses a heavy-duty, rubber backed cast paddle to pivot between the two outlets.  This valve, when diverting, fills with product and product changes direction by hitting product, not metal.  This switch is completely assembled, pre-wired and pre-piped.
This valve is not recommended for process where contamination would be a problem since a small amount of material is retained in the switch.  Good for high pressure conveying.

Gravity Flap Diverter Valve

Gravity Flap Diverter

* The Gravity Flap Diverter is also used to reroute product from one  line to another, but is used only in gravity flow applications. 

* The Gravity Flap Diverter’s operation is either by pneumatic air cylinder, electric linear actuator, manual lever arm or rotary type actuators.

* The Graity Flap Diverter is  available as 2-way (one inlet and two outlets) or 3-way (one inlet and three outlets).
