Aggregate Diverter Handling Corn Grits

Aggregate Diverter Handling Corn Grits
28 Oct 2022  |
These 254mm (10”) and 304mm (12”) Vortex Aggregate Diverters are used to handle the discharged corn flour from a bucket elevator to the different storage silos below. The Venezuelan manufacturer processes the corn for arepas.

For this application, electric actuators were chosen due to the lack of availability of air available where the valves are located within the plant.

Special modifications were made for additional resistance to abrasion. These included the implementation of a special service inlet with built in dead pocket/rock box and a nest coating in the diverter cube/rock box.
