October 1, 2010 by Canadian Plastics

A newly designed slide gate (SG2) from Lorenz Conveying Products features 3/8th-inch thick top and bottom flanges for improved sealing capability by achieving increased pressure on the seals with greater torque on the plates. This also allows the slide gate to be air purged for a fully pressurized body.

The design has no side ledges to collect material, and allows for space savings in tight quarters.

Fewer fasteners make it simpler to maintain, and the lighter design allows for simple handling and installation.

The company offers two-week standard delivery times on the slide gate.
