Diverters and Gates
Diverters can be used to sort and merge rigid and non-rigid products in your conveying line. Contact us to learn more about how we can integrate these into your material handling and automation systems.
Flexible Conveyor System Automation With Diverters And Gates
We engineer solutions for diverting for all product types – fragile or solid. Effective diverters can be essential to the continuous flow on your production or distribution line.
SpanTech Powered Divert Conveyor
Alleviate accumulation issues with a Powered Divert, an ideal solution for non-rigid and bagged products.
The powered divert sorting and merging option is especially useful for non-rigid items, such as bagged product. It is also valuable for applications with a limited conveyor length, specifically where a standard, stationary divert rail (with a lesser angle of deflection) would be too long to fit within the available space. The powered divert helps the product continue moving forward, alleviating accumulation issues. The powered divert is a small conveyor (Minilink or Multispan) turned at a 90° angle and suspended above the horizontal chain.

Control Product Flow
Controlling the continuous flow of products through the line is critical to maintain efficiency. Product flow is achieved using a variety of methods and components depending upon the product, flow path and equipment with which to interface.
Product can be diverted using static guides and plows or dynamic gates and paddles.
