Isolate source material from bins, hoppers, and silos for periodic maintenance or for emergency shutoff with manual maintenance slide gates. They deliver a convenient positive-material shutoff for downstream equipment servicing or repair, such as rotary valve replacement, without requiring that the source vessel be emptied. The dust-tight gates are used to facilitate maintenance operations in dry bulk handling, gravity, and pneumatic conveying systems. They operate manually with a narrow profile—ideal for areas with restricted headroom and access—and come available with round or square flanges and custom options. They feature a knife-gate action and unobstructed orifice action to minimize material shearing, and they ensure that material cut-off is clean. The blade mechanically self-cleans with each opening stroke for long-lasting, efficient service. Because the gates feature a hand wheel for manual operation, there are no costly actuators or motors to maintain or replace. The gates also feature hard seals to provide optimal wear resistance and a longer service life.
