Waterman - Model C-20 - Canal Gates
From Irrigation Equipment
Waterman’s C-20 Canal Gate is made to fit the need for a pressure cut-off where either moderate seating or low unseating pressures are encountered. Typical uses include installation in treatment plants, flood control projects, irrigation canals and diversion stands. Flatback gates for headwall mounting or spigot back models for attaching to corrugated metal pipe are available. The cover, frame ring, adjustable wedges, arch, and handwheel are made of cast iron, with a bronze seat option for wastewater applications. The lift nut is cast bronze and utilizes rugged acme type threads. The steel stem is secured to the cover by an easily removable pin to permit removing for maintenance. This feature also allows the user to stock standard frame length gates and provide field installation of rising stem extensions, where this is desirable.
