Lorenz manufactures slide gates for gravity, vacuum, or pressure conveying systems rated to 15 PSI. Three-eights-in.-thick top and bottom flanges provide pressure on the seals with greater torque on the plates. Slide gates can be air purged to handle fine powders eliminating concerns about product leakage. Constructed with a lightweight aluminum body and a polished stainless steel blade, they are a “clean” gate with no side ledges to collect material. Fewer fasteners make it simple to maintain and lighter for handling and installation. The shorter design saves space in tight quarters. Aluminum, stainless steel, or carbon steel contact points are standard. Gates are available with pneumatic, manual, or electric actuation. All slide gates are factory tested prior to shipping.
Slide gates can be manufactured to your specific application and specifications. Standard delivery time is two weeks.
