Conveyor diverters are ideal for conveyor systems to help inventory control, product flow, organization, and efficiency within the systems. The main purpose of this conveyor sortation system is to move a case, item piece, or carton off the main line. Diverters have a fixed or powered face deflectors to help transport items to where they need to be along the conveyor belt. They can divert and sort products based on shape, weight, capacity, and size that will help to improve output. Conveyor diverters help warehouse facilities improve efficiency, convenience, and performance. Diverters come in a variety of styles and designs to fit your warehouses needs. Our selection of used conveyor diverters includes plows, pushers, traffic cops, kickwheel, and pop-up diverters.

Conveyor diverters, also known as diverting gates or sorting gates, are essential components in conveyor systems designed to guide and redirect items or products onto alternative pathways. These versatile mechanisms play a crucial role in streamlining material handling processes by selectively diverting items from the main conveyor line to designated chutes, lanes, or conveyors based on predetermined criteria. Conveyor diverters are utilized in various industries, including distribution centers, manufacturing facilities, and airports, to efficiently sort and direct items for packaging, quality control, distribution, or other specific purposes.
Equipped with sensors, actuators, and intelligent control systems, conveyor diverters can make split-second decisions to ensure accurate and efficient sorting. They enhance productivity by automating the separation of products, reducing manual intervention, and minimizing the risk of errors. Conveyor diverters offer flexibility in routing items, accommodating various package sizes, weights, and configurations. With their ability to handle high throughput rates and adapt to changing requirements, conveyor diverters contribute to optimized material flow and improved overall operational efficiency in modern conveyor systems.
Conveyor traffic cops control product flow on conveyor systems, allowing traffic to travel freely without interference from other conveyor lines. Eliminate the risk of colliding products and damage to merchandise with the help from a conveyor traffic cop offered by ASI.
A product will hit the first arm of the traffic control cop before moving forward, while the other arm locks, preventing product from coming through on another conveyor. Take control of conveyor traffic, and forget about additional labor.
Conveyor pushers and diverters divide the flow of product into predetermined lanes. Diverters can also be used to merge multiple conveyor lines into one.
Pneumatic conveyor pushers and pullers are used in light carton, low line back pressure conveyor systems. Pushers and pullers are often mounted at the end of a line, directing cartons to different work stations.Pneumatic diverters are designed to push cartons off a conveyor if a bar code is undetected, or if the weight of a carton is inaccurate.
At American Surplus, we test and inspect all conveyor accessories prior to shipment to ensure that only the highest quality used equipment leaves our warehouse. Contact a member of our sales team to learn more about our current inventory of used conveyor diverters, as well as our full array of used conveyor accessories.
Q: Why are conveyor diverters used?
A: Conveyor diverters are used to efficiently sort and direct items for various purposes, such as packaging, quality control, routing to different destinations, or further processing.
Q: Where is conveyor diverters commonly used?
A: Conveyor diverters are commonly used in industries such as e-commerce, distribution centers, manufacturing, airports, and baggage handling systems.
Q: How do conveyor diverters work?
A: Conveyor diverters typically incorporate sensors, actuators, and control systems. When an item reaches the diverting point, sensors detect its presence and the control system triggers the appropriate actuator to redirect the item onto the desired pathway.
Q: What criteria are used to determine where items are diverted?
A: Items can be diverted based on criteria such as size, weight, barcode or RFID information, destination, sorting rules, or other predefined factors.
Q: How do conveyor diverters contribute to operational efficiency?
A: Conveyor diverters automate the sorting process, reducing the need for manual intervention and streamlining material flow, which enhances overall operational efficiency.
Q: How do I choose the right conveyor diverter for my needs?
A: Consider factors such as sorting volume, item characteristics, available space, integration requirements, sorting accuracy, and compatibility with existing systems when selecting a conveyor diverter. Consulting with experts in conveyor systems and sorting technology can help guide your decision.
