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.
