Diverter valves are a type of processing valves developed and designed to direct powders, solids or slurries to flow from a single inlet to multiple outlets, without disturbing the line operations. These valves are also used for controlling the flow and to converge multiple flowing lines into a single line. Diverter valves are ideal for usage or applications in equipment or machines where pumping of substances to silos or multiple vessels is required.
