Lane Diverters

Stainless steel conveyor lane diverters divide containers and packages from infeed lanes to multiple discharge lanes at high speeds with maximum efficiency.

TYPE: Stainless Steel Conveyor Systems


A stainless steel lane diverter redirects the motion of a conveyed product.  Thomas Conveyor offers diverters that can handle the simplest divert pattern to lane diverters that can divert sequentially to multiple discharge lanes. The divert gate allows for a 1:2 or 1:3 lane divert application. Lane diverters divide containers and packages from infeed lanes to multiple discharge lanes, at high speeds with efficiency, care, and accuracy.

The line of stainless steel conveyors is pre-engineered, allowing us to provide a modular design, saving you time and money. Equipment typically ships in 10 – 15 business days. 

Eco Friendly Application


  • The units have adjustable guide rails and elevation adjustment capabilities
  • Shipped fully assembled and include configurable mounting hardware for fast field installation
  • Adding a programmable logic controller (PIC) to the servo drive technology will allow the escapement gates to operate at high speed for precise product movement and product placement
  • Lane diverting conveyors can be retrofitted into existing lines to handle increased capacity with minimal disruption to existing production
  • Thomas Conveyors' stainless steel lane diverting conveyors are designed to integrate with our complete line of infeed and discharge conveyors
