Titan lined diverter handling dolomitic limestone rock

Highly abrasive application with dolomitic limestone rock

This hydraulically actuated Vortex Titan-Lined Diverter features a 2690mm x 405mm transition that feeds dolomitic limestone rock to a 1220 mm x 405 mm diverter inlet and two 915mm x 405 mm outlets.

Material contact areas (3 sides) contain replaceable abrasion-resistant steel liners (400 BHN).

An “A-style” AR blade covers and protects the blade shaft from wear and abrasion.

Two inspection ports are mounted on the inlet transition and the diverter internals are accessible through a removable cover on the actuator side.

The diverter will be mounted, tilted at a 37-degree slope (actuator side up), to become part of a chute. Lifting lugs have been added to assist with the installation.

Titan slide gate handling alumina trihydrate
Titan slide gate handling alumina trihydrate
A Bauxite refinery contacted Vortex to source a gate to feed alumina trihydrate into a furnace. They needed a gate that could withstand the high temperatures from the furnace. Vortex engineered a Titan Slide Gate that features: •A surface finished with high temperature-resistant paint. •Seals constructed from bronze and graphite fiberglass to handle temperature spikes up 315⁰ C (600⁰ F). •A beveled blade constructed from 400 Brinell Hardness Number (BHN) abrasion-resistant steel. •A three-phase electric linear actuator that delivers the force required to close through a standing column of material, if necessary. In the case of an electrical loss, the actuator is also equipped with a manual hand wheel override. Alumina trihydrate is a white, odorless, powdery substance. It is primarily used in aluminum metal production, but is also used in epoxy, urethane and polyester resins as a smoke suppressant and flame retardant filler. Approximately 100 million tons

Vortex Gravity Vee Diverter Replaces Flapper Diverter Materials can flow individually or both outlets simultaneously or both closed
Vortex Gravity Vee Diverter Replaces Flapper Diverter
Materials can flow individually or both outlets simultaneously or both closed Application: Vortex’s client previously utilised a flapper diverter to handle baking flour. This was problematic because, depending on the position of the blade, material was constantly flowing through one of the outlets. With the Vortex Gravity Vee Diverter, materials can flow toward either outlet individually, both outlets simultaneously, or both closed for material shut-off. Features: * Dual cylinder gate design. * Diverter body, blade & material contact areas constructed from 316L stainless steel. * Seals constructed from PET polymer, for food-grade product safety. * 24 in | 610 mm round inlet transition, to connect with a hopper above. Inlet transition * features 12 fluidizer pads to assist material flow. * Round, 12 in | 305 mm, ANSI flange outlet transitions, to match the client’s pre-existing footprint. * Pre-wired terminal box. Set up for a Class II, Div I (Groups E, F, G) environment. This dual cylinder Gravity Vee Diverter was

Vortex Seal Tite Diverter Handles Pet Food Kibbles
Vortex Seal Tite Diverter Handles Pet Food Kibbles
A pet food manufacturer needed to divert kibble dry food from a feeder into one of two disc conveyors, which transports the kibbles to the packaging line. Vortex engineered several 254mm Seal Tite Diverters constructed from stainless steel for the pet food company. The four Vortex Seal Tite Diverters feature a removable access door that allows inspection, maintenance and repairs to be performed without removing the diverter from service. The Seal Tite Diverters also feature removable parts. For return-on-investment purposes, this feature is beneficial because it allows for the replacement of worn parts, rather than full diverter replacement. The Seal Tite Diverters are designed so that the leading edge of the blade actuates into a recessed area. This protects the blade’s seals from the material flow stream, which would otherwise cause them to wear and allow material leakage into the closed diverter leg. The client is very pleased with the performance
