Duct Gate

April 6, 2009
The AutoAire cut-off gate automatically opens needed duct branches when a machine is turned on, while closing off inactive branches and machines. This fully utilizes the pick-up power of a collection system by applying as much vacuum as possible, only when and where needed, allowing a smaller fan to handle a system with many branches. The gate allows sizing of the collector system based on the true usage, rather than the total requirement. This can reduce the size and cost of the system. The gate can also eliminate the need to purchase a larger collection unit as a plant adds branches to a duct system over time. It is easily installed in the air-handling ductwork.
