Bulkmatic Flow Control Gates are manufactured using the latest technology in laser cutting, water jetting and welding. The flow control gates are designed for accurate control of the flow of abrasive, powdered materials. In particular they can be mounted in-line with airslides.
An integrated aeration pad at the bottom of the flow control gate assists the flow of material where the units are installed in-line with air slides. A positioner can be used to position the vee-notch drum via a 4-20mA input signal. As an optional extra position feedback can also be included.
A manual override is available to position the gate should the air or power supply to the actuator fail. Specially selected non-fray sealing material is used to ensure that there is a positive seal between drum and casing at all times. The drive shaft is protected from wear by means of a ceramic liner sleeve. Standard material of manufacture is mild steel or stainless steel depending on customer requirements.
Options include a three position actuator or a fail safe spring return actuator.
Standard sizes include: 200, 300, 400, 500, and 600. Other sizes and configurations are supplied on request.
