Controlling wet product by gates and sealing it in a horizontal blade application is an engineering challenge that Custom Conveyor Corporation has meet with over 30 years’ experience in gate design.
We design and manufacture gates in four basic categories. Our gates control the discharge of materials from centrifuges, hoppers, bins, silos or conveyors. The gates consist of a rigid frame mounted to the bottom of the storage, process device or conveyor. Gates may be simple slide type utilizing ultra-high density polyurethane or roller type with cam followers. Blade thickness requirements are calculated and seal selection is based years of empirical experience. Gates in low solids applications may incorporate drain rails to capture and drain minor leakage. They may be operated manually or with pneumatic, electric or hydraulic actuators.
