Meyer - Maintenance Slide Gates
From Slide Gates
Maintenance Slide Gates isolate components in the system for easy removal and emergency shut-off. Meyer Maintenance Slide Gates are economical and reliable components used to isolate rotary valves below from hoppers above to control gravity batch unloading. These gates deliver a positive shut-off of material flow for service or replacement of the system rotary valve without the hopper being emptied.
The Maintenance Slide Gate is manually operated with a low profile. Dust tight inside to out, it is used to facilitate maintenance operations in dry bulk handling, gravity and pneumatic conveying systems. Sizes to fit standard square or round flange patterns of Meyer Airlock Feeders. Sizes to fit special requirements are also available.
