Gravity Flow Diverter

Gravity flow diverters are used to control the quantity and direction of flow in gravity feed systems such as those used in the dry bulk industry. The diverters often include a plate which swings from one side to the other to control the leg of the diverter into which the material flows. Limit switches are typically used to control when the diverter plate moves from one position to another.
