The Vortex Multi-Port Wye Line Diverter is specifically engineered to handle dry bulk solids in vacuum or dilute phase pneumatic conveying systems with pressures up to 15 psig (1 barg) depending on size. The multi-port eliminates the need for complicated hose manifold stations. This helps address potential errors when manually switching hoses and greatly reduces safety hazards.
