Gates, Valves and Diverters Info Sheet

Slide gates offer several benefits for a bulk material facility. They can reduce downtime by temporarily stopping or by-passing material flow to provide proper maintenance to necessary downstream equipment.

Valves can be easily adapted to equipment and work best for unrestricted flow of product. This makes them practical if all that’s needed is an open/closed valve – such as loadout to truck or railcars and under bins and silos.

Diverters, also known as diverter valves, control the flow of bulk material from one material stream to another. They use an actuating blade or basket/pan to ease the flow of materials to multiple chosen discharge points.
