Diverter for Distributing and Collecting Product Flows in Pneumatic Conveying Lines

The Feeder Diverter FPW is used to distribute and collect product flows in pneumatic conveying lines. The compact construction enables an easy installation in the pneumatic conveying lines.

An optimal seal and an unobstructed conveying cross-section guarantee a problem-free use with powders and granules. The Feeder Diverter FPW consists of a housing with two side covers and an integrated drive, in which a plug with two passages directs the product stream. The housing and the plug are made of cast aluminum, but with inserts made of stainless steel (1.4541) for the product-contacting surfaces. A special sealing ring inserted into the housing serves as a seal between the housing and the rotating chuck. The outlets of the switch are pressure-resistant and gas-tight to 4 bar overpressure and pressure-resistant up to 10 bar. The drive integrated in one side cover can be installed both on the right and left.

By loosening the screws of the side cover, removing the cover and pulling out the plug, the conveyor can be disassembled quickly for cleaning purposes. However, the unit is not CIP-capable.

The feeder diverter is equipped with a pulse solenoid valve with two coils and two inductive proximity switches for the position feedback. The unit is completely wired up to the terminal box. The control voltage is 24V / DC and the required control pressure is 4 to 8 bar. The maximum permissible product temperature is 120 ° C.
