Diverter Gates from HMA Materials Handling are used extensively in the bulk materials processing industry to direct the flow of material to various processing circuits, regulate the flow to various circuits and to isolate circuits for maintenance. They can be as basic as a single to double diverter with a manual lever to change blade position from one side to the other, or they can be fully-automated devices capable of proportioning flow from one or more sources to a large number of destinations.
Diverter gates from HMA Materials Handling can be of two designs, depending on the characteristics of the material being handled. A simple flat blade diverter is applicable for most materials and is relatively inexpensive and easy to install and maintain. For some material, the non-jamming characteristics and sealing capabilities of the rolling blade diverter make it more suitable.
Diverter gates can be fabricated from or equipped with a wide range of construction materials, depending on the characteristics of the bulk material being handled. Some examples of construction materials for different applications are:
Especially for totally sealed gates, it is important to have a method of determining the position of the gate blade. For gates used to adjust the flow of material, it is necessary to monitor the position of the blade at all times. For some gates it is necessary to determine when they are closed, for others whey they are open and for others when they are both open and closed. Some of the devices available to determine the gate blade position are:
