Diverter Valves

Diverter Valves

Kice has been designing and manufacturing diverter valves for more than 40 years. While raw materials and controls have improved over time, our simple design remains the same and continues to prove effective in thousands of different applications worldwide. Built to prevent leaking and plugging, Kice diverter valves help reduce product waste and increase uptime.

Diverter valves and bin fill valves experience constant contact with product moving through them. It makes financial sense to invest in heavy-duty, cast-iron valves that can withstand the wear and tear of product flow. Kice diverter valves are designed to handle pressures as high as 8-10 psi. They are built with close tolerances so that product cannot reach the bearings that support the shafts.

Diverter Valves


Kice 67-Series diverter valves and 68-Series bin valves are heavy-duty, cast-iron valves with tightly machined clearances. This means they meet the critical need to terminate a pneumatic conveying system at multiple destinations and are ideal for handling bulk material using gravity flow. Kice diverter valves can be used for several different industries. Combined with our pneumatic conveying equipment, diverter valves can accomplish virtually anything your application requires.



valves are cast aluminum diverters used for gravity flow applications. Available as manual or automated in 4”, 5” or 6” diameters.


bucket valves are used for gravity flow applications that require large diameter spouts.

51/52/53 Series

diverter valves are another option for gravity flow applications and are also used as splitters. Available in aluminum or steel.


diverter valves have two outlets providing a straight-through passage with a single 30-degree branch.


diverter valves have three outlets providing a straight-through passage with two 30-degree branches.


bin fill valves are used in sequence with one another, providing either a straight-through passage or a downward fill position.

Standard features

  • Manual controls are the simplest operation. A handle locks the valve in the desired position.
  • Pneumatic actuators with electric solenoids are the most common type of controls.
  • Electric controls are available when compressed air is not available and remote control is needed.
  • Position indicators electrically rated for non-hazardous or hazardous locations are available with any type of control package. Options include limit switches or proximity-type sensors.
  • Cast-iron bodies, end plates and rotor from Kice’s foundry come standard. Rotors have closed ends to protect the bearings from pressure and product.
  • Heavy-duty ball bearings support the shaft and provide years of dependability.
  • Bolt-on transitions are cast-iron machined units just as strong as the valve itself.

New enhancements

  • Precise blade positioning reduces wear on the leading edge of the diverter blade.
  • Improved drive system guarding has been engineered to remove potential pinch points, finger entry, and equipment protection per ANSI B11.19-2010 and OSHA 1910.219 safety standards.
  • High visibility position indicators help operators easily determine proper diverting location without accessing the unit and taking the equipment offline.
  • An engineered square drive shaft helps prolong the life of the equipment and ensures correct blade alignment.
  • Field conversion kits are available for converting a manually controlled diverter valve to an automatic valve. The guard’s backplate mounts to the existing endplate bolt hole pattern.
  • Conversion kits are available for mounting the controls on either side of the valve.

Optional features

  • Hardened surface rotor for abrasive materials.
  • Stainless steel for food-grade or corrosion-prone environments.
