The RICON Dual Tunnel type diverters have been specially designed to route powders and pellets with minimum degradation in pneumatic conveying systems. The RICON plug type diverter is applied in the chemical, pharmaceutical, plastic, food and other related industries.
The RICON plug type diverter consists of an Aluminum housing and end covers in which a plug with two pipes is installed. All product contact surfaces are made from SS 304. Three approved silicone seals guarantee the sealing between housing and plug. The body is pressure tight, so ensuring no leakage to atmosphere. The standard diverter can be used in systems with positive pressures up to 3 bar g (static seals). The sizes 50-150 are optionally available for pressures up to 6 bar g (inflatable seals). The RICON Dual Tunnel Diverter Valve is supplied with a complete electro pneumatic control system, including solenoids and inductive position sensors. The standard diverter can be used for product temperatures ranging from –25 °C up to +80 °C at ambient temperatures of –10 °C up to +40 °C. Versions for higher temperatures are available on request.
