Externally Adjustable Slide Gate

May 14, 2012

This product was developed to address a service issue that has been a concern for years with traditional slide gates. The more traditional slide gates incorporate an internal perimeter seal arrangement. To access these seals the traditional gate required the equipment above the gate to be emptied then the gate was removed from operation for maintenance. The externally adjustable seal arrangement has eliminated the need for emptying equipment above the gate. The gate seals are accessible from the outside of the gate and are external to the product flow area. This arrangement extends seal life. With ease in accessing the seals and the seals no longer in direct contact with product flow, maintenance time is minimized.
