Controls Allow Variable Positioning Of Gate Blades

pn-1.jpgVolume metering controls are said to allow variable positioning of slide gate blades, providing maximum flow through a fully open gate with the option to vary the position of the blade on the opening or closing stroke.

  Large volume air controls provide a quick blade speed and high cycle service. Gate blade positioning is repeatable to within ± 1/16 in. of its set point and is not affected by materials handled or gate wear conditions. This allows for very accurate material fill weights.

Preset variable position(s) will not float past set points as with traditional bulk and dribble feed controls. Each position is 100% adjustable over the stroke of the gate and can be easily changed in a matter of minutes. Controls can be applied to all of the manufacturer's slide gates and are also retrofittable.

Contact the manufacturer directly for pricing information (see our Key Contact Directory).
