Diverter valves are primarily used to split or combine process flows, or to switch medium among different pieces of process equipment such as pumps, filters, or whole pipelines.
Diverter valves provide reliable, high flow rates in the most severe operating conditions including vacuum conditions. They can also handle highly viscous media without the need for constant back-flushing.
The diverter valves are available with different ball designs to accommodate a wide range of flow patterns. These flexible flow combinations reduce the number of valves in a system, thereby saving costs and facilitating easier control. Because the body Face-to-Face dimensions of diverter valves are identical to those of standard two-way valves, changeover between the two configurations is relatively easy.
