Melt flow diverter valve for process start-up and stopping.

Trendelkamp diverter valves are used everywhere a melt is diverted, separated, or united. The valve is hydraulically operated and moves the valve bolt rapidly in its different positions.

Diverter valves from Trendelkamp effectively perform a variety of functions in the polymer, chemical and food industries. TAV / TWV valves can be used for smooth, efficient start-up processes of an underwater pelletizer, or for diverting fluids to one or more ports.
