Curved Blade Diverter Valve
Curved blade diverter valves are designed to shut off the flow of product from outlets of dry bulk storage bins, silos, conveyors, gravity flow chutes and other discharge points.
DCL’s curved blade diverter valves are fast-acting, tight-sealing and very effective for regulating flow rates. The diverter configuration will allow not only a selection of flow to one or both legs at the same time, but will also act as a complete shut off valve. The curved blade valve should only be used when handling fine or granular materials and not materials containing a large particle size.
DCL’s CBDV valve housing is constructed of plate steel with cross member supports on lager sizes. Each reinforced curved blade pivots on two flanged bearings allowing it to open and close with ease. Actuation of curved blade diverter valves can be accomplished in many ways; pneumatically for fast action, hydraulically for power, electrically for precise positioning and manually with a chain wheel or lever. The seals on the curved blade diverter are designed to eliminate product leakage when the blade is in the shut off position. The seals are mounted to the CBD housing instead of the blade, offering you easy access and replacement. Blade seals are selected according to the material being handled and are available to suit any application.
DCL offers a large selection of curved blade diverter valves from 6 inches [152 mm] square up to 36 inches [914 mm] square in symmetrical 30 or 45 degree configurations. Curved blade diverter valves are also available in sizes larger than 36 inches [914 mm] and in special configurations including hardened liners.
A choice of construction materials allows you to effectively handle all types of products – fine, granular, lumpy, abrasive and corrosive – and difficult dusty or sanitary applications. You can also choose from the electrical options that are best suited for your environment: NEMA 4, NEMA 4X, NEMA 7, NEMA 9, 120V/220V control, 460V/415V power, etc.
