WICHITA, KN – Kice Industries announced it has introduced an upgraded Diverter Valve to its Diverter Valve line. The improved Diverter Valve is available for Kice Models 67Q2-2 through 67Q6-2 and 68Q2 through 68Q6 (2”OD – 6”OD line size).
“This improvement will help prolong the life of the equipment,” said Jeff Kice, Kice Industries. “The precise blade positioning reduces wear on the leading edge of the diverter blade. We also gave them highly visible position indicators to help operators easily determine proper diverting location without accessing the unit and taking the equipment offline”
Another improvement is the new guard which was engineered to remove potential pinch points, finger entry and equipment protection per safety standards ANSI B11.19-2010 and OSHA 1910.219.
Field conversion kits have been made available for operators, allowing for ease of conversion from a manually controlled diverter valve to an automatic valve.
“The guard’s backplate mounts to the existing endplate bolt hole pattern,” said Kice. “Conversion kits are available for mounting the controls on either side of the valve.”
