  • Standard sluice gates are manufactured from Stainless Steel and Duplex materials, depending on the application.
  • Light duty units are available in a combination of stainless steel, duplex steel and engineering plastics.
  • Each unit is application-specific designed to suit the installation.
  • Materials of construction are sized suitably to allow for sufficient margin of safety and minimum deflection. In general, door deflection allowed is less than 2mm.
  • No metal to metal contact is applied – doors move between HDPE wear liners and the seals.
  • The seal arrangements used are suitable for waste water applications.
  • Standard leakage rates are superior to the rates specified by AWWA C5.01. Should specific leakage rates be specified, units are designed and supplied to suit.
  • Various operating arrangements are available, including hand wheel operated, hand wheel via gearbox, electrically actuated and pneumatically actuated.
  • Hand wheel force required is below 150N, or as specified.
