SLIDE GATES, DIVERTERS, & LOADING SPOUTS

Ideal for handling dry bulk material in gravity flow, dilute phase or dense phase pneumatic conveying applications. Vortex slide gates and diverters are designed and engineered with two main principals in mind: 1. extend the service life of the valve and 2. perform maintenance without taking the valve out of line.

Vortex products serve many industries. Some of the industries that use the Vortex slide gates, diverters and loading spouts include: Agriculture, Chemical, Coffee, Dairy, Foods, Milling, Pet Food, Petrochemical, Pharmaceutical, Plastics, Rubber, Textiles, Tobacco, Rock and Sand, Alumina, Bauxite, Cement, Clinker, Coal, Fly Ash, Glass Cullet and Lime/Limestone – to name a few.

ATEX Rated Flex Tube Diverter Handling Fluffy Powder The largest Flex Tube Diverter Vortex has designed that is fully ATEX rated,  used to feed Microcrystalline Cellulose.
ATEX Rated Flex Tube Diverter Handling Fluffy Powder
The largest Flex Tube Diverter Vortex has designed that is fully ATEX rated, used to feed Microcrystalline Cellulose. A nutrition manufacturing company in Ireland selected a 200mm (8”) Vortex Flex Tube Diverter to feed Microcrystalline Cellulose from a rotary valve and silo above the diverter and then into three positive pressure lines. This is the largest Flex Tube Diverter Vortex has designed that is fully ATEX rated, including the hose assembly. This Flex Tube Diverter features a 304 stainless steel body with 316 stainless steel material contact areas. Additionally, material contact components are 2B (32RA) finished. The valve includes 150# ANSI flanges on both the inlets and outlets. The air cylinder is epoxy coated with A2 stainless steel fasteners.

Vortex to Display Pivoting Chute Diverter at Powtech
Vortex to Display Pivoting Chute Diverter at Powtech
Vortex will demonstrate the Pivoting Chute Diverter at Powtech 2022, Hall 4, Stand 108, 27-29 September, in Nürnberg, Germany. Vortex developed the gravity-flow Pivoting Chute Diverter (PCD) for abrasive materials such as industrial sand, limestone, coal, gypsum, clinker, gravel, bauxite and minerals. The diverter body houses an internal chute that pivots to direct the material flow. The main advantage of the PCD is that there are no internal seals to maintain. The chute addresses material abrasion and can be constructed of, or lined, with wear resistant materials (e.g. chromium carbide, abrasion-resistant steel, or ceramic). Inspection, maintenance, or repairs to the diverter may be performed from the front access panel – without removing the diverter from service. The PCD is dust-tight to atmosphere, may be shifted “on-the-fly”, and is available in 2-way and 3-way configurations. The chute may be positioned to split flow to both directions simultaneously.

Vortex Gates & Diverters Handle Paprika
Vortex Gates & Diverters Handle Paprika
Handling spices can be a complex process offering a variety of challenges. Among the primary concerns when handling these ingredients are dusting to atmosphere and viscosity of the materials being handled. These businesses can mitigate potentially detrimental effects by purchasing dust-tight valves for their facilities. Many dust-tight valves designed today feature hard polymers as a sealing surface, because they offer a superior seal and better wear characteristics for most applications. A spice company handling paprika, selected a 100mm (4”) Vortex Wye Line Diverter to eliminate material cross contamination accompanied by several 500mm (20”) Vortex Roller Gates to shut off and seal material at the bottom of dry blenders and mixers. Features include magnetic reed switches and stainless-steel material contact surfaces and rollers. The Wye Line Diverter is bespoken to eliminate cross contamination with the line being purged between batches. These valves

Pivoting Chute Diverters Handle Lime and Limestone
Pivoting Chute Diverters Handle Lime and Limestone
A construction company in Sonora, Mexico, contacted Vortex in 2021 to source a chute diverter strong enough to handle the abrasion from limestone processing. Vortex supplied two 400mm (16”) Pivoting Chute Diverters (PCD) each weighing 500 kg (1103 lbs). Lime and limestone are handled through these diverters. The Vortex PCDs are designed to divert heavy-duty and/or abrasive dry bulk solid materials from one source toward two or three destinations in gravity-fed applications. The Vortex Pivoting Chute Diverter offers in-line maintenance features, durable materials of construction, reduced downtime, prolonged service life and many other significant advantages over flap diverters and bucket diverters. The diverters were installed last year, and the client says their process is performing great.

Wye Line Diverter Handling Sheet Metal Shavings
Wye Line Diverter Handling Sheet Metal Shavings
In this application, 50mm (2”) Vortex Wye Line Diverters are included on a factory piece of equipment that acts as a multi-tool machine used for building airplane parts. As holes are drilled to fasten sheet metal, the diverter is used as part of a vacuum system to pull away shavings. The shavings are routed through the straight leg to reduce wear and the off leg pulls to clean air. The straight leg is opposite the air cylinder to fit better in the client’s process. * These specific Wye Line Diverters feature Teflon pressure plates. * Aluminium valve body with live loaded, wear compensating seals with a 304 stainless steel blade. * Inlet and outlet weldments are constructed from carbon steel. Material contact is carbon steel, 304 stainless steel and polymer. * Inlet has a straight through conveying line design for easier ”in line” installation of multiple diverters. * PET pressure plates are backed with a foam void filler and live loaded natural rubber

Vortex Global Provides Process Solution for Chemical Company
The Vortex Seal Tite Diverter is well-designed for handling fine materials in gravity flow applications, and provides positive material shut-off with dust-tight sealing capabilities. Based in Cheshire, UK, Tata Chemicals Europe is one of Europe’s leading producers of sodium carbonate, salt and sodium bicarbonate, among other products. Tata Chemicals is the only manufacturer of soda ash and sodium bicarbonate in the UK. Their high-quality soda ash is used in the manufacture of glass, detergents and chemicals, and in several other industry applications. Their many grades of sodium bicarbonate have applications ranging from haemodialysis and pharmaceuticals, to food and animal feed, flue gas treatments, detergents and personal care products. Tata Chemicals’ Lostock site, located in Northwich, Cheshire, has multiple manufacturing processes, including bulk storage, bulk material discharge, and transfer of anhydrous sodium carbonate. This is a material with a fine particle size, with a certain percentage less than 63 micron. In the problem area of the process, materials are transported via a bucket elevator and diverted into either of two chain
