Diverters for bulk solids

Multiple paths for more efficiency

With the help of diverters, several start or end points can be served with one conveying line. This not only saves investment costs, it also increases flexibility. For example, raw materials can be removed from sacks or big bags and transported further using the same conveyor. Alternating the supply to different receiving stations increases utilisation of the conveyor system, improving energy efficiency. 

Diverter flaps for downpipes allow the bulk material flow to be easily switched. Be it to discharge of unusable material or, for example, to supply several mixers with one supply bin.
