DeGATECH supplied pneumatic slide gates are used in a wide variety of bulk material handling applications. They can be used on the bottom of screw conveyors at intermediate discharge locations to divert product to another location, below silos to stop the flow of product to downstream equipment or even as emergency shut-off gates to stop material surges. DeGATECH 's pneumatic slide gates use a pneumatic or air operated cylinder to actuate the slide plate open and closed. Typically, plant air pressure (approximately 80 psi) is all that is required to power this multi-use slide gate. The slide plate is guided by bronze-bushed rollers on the bottom and 1/2" thick UhMW slide plate retainers on the top. The rollers require no grease and are adjustable in order to provide years of maintenance free service. Replacement parts are low cost and stock items at DeGATECH and available for overnight delivery.
All Welded Construction - Slide gate frames are designed and constructed as one weldment to provide maximum rigidity for heavy industrial applications in round and square openings. Heavy Duty slide Plate - Slide plates are made from 3/16" up to 1/2" thick solid carbon or stainless steel to withstand product pressure and head load. The corners of the slide plate are beveled to prevent binding when opening and closing the gate. The pneumatic cylinder is directly attached to the slide plate for a compact and economical design.
Benefitss Compact Design - The DeGATECH pneumatic slide gate's compact design allows it to fit in almost any space. The compact, modular design allows for the integration of solenoids, filter/regulators, and position switches. Versatile and rugged - Custom designed pneumatic slide gates can be built to fit any application. The slide gate frame and slide plate can be fabricated from a wide variety of materials and thicknesses. Inlet and discharge transitions can be adapted to fit any opening configuration. Large diameter bore cylinders can be utilized for head loads and tough applications. This versatility allows the design to be custom tailored to fit any application and/or design conditions.
