Choose Manual or Air Actuated 'A' Valve Diverter Valves

The 'A' Valve's material diverter gate may be actuated manually or with compressed air. The valve shown below features the air-actuated valve. Note however that a manual valve is also available, which enables the system operator to divert material on demand.

Note: The diverter gate cannot be actuated against a head of material.

For replacement air-cylinder actuators, proof switches or selenoid valves, contact the Coperion K-Tron Salina factory.
