Gates and Covers
Our mechanical vibration equipment can come equipped with Slide Gates, Pivot Gates, Plug Gates, and Covers. Whether you need to convey it, screen it or separate it, we can help you meet your objectives.
Gates & Covers for Vibratory Conveyors
Gates and covers can be an integral component to your traditional pitch-action style vibrating conveyors for light or extreme duty applications. Our team will find the right slide gates, pivot gates, plug gates, or covers for your application.
The Triple/S Eco-Slide Gate was developed when a major food processor approached Triple/S Dynamics with the problem of cleaning and maintaining the existing gates on their conveyors. They wanted the ability of the removal of the gate to be tool-less, less time for disassembly and reassembly during the sanitation process between plant production cycles. The Triple/S design team went to work to develop a new low cost gate system to meet the customer’s requirements.
It took just one day to retrofit the new gates into the existing conveyors. Tool-less and easily removable for sanitation affording the customer less downtime, this new gate is a great example of why collaborating with the customer’s needs works.
Easy Clean Slide Gate
The Easy Clean Slide Gate offers food processors fast, thorough cleaning of all critical gate areas. Sanitation is improved with no fasteners in the food stream, as is performance and reliability of the gate. For cleaning access, toggle clamps on each side of the gate assembly are released which allow the stainless steel retaining frame to pivot away from the conveyor pan. The UHMW gate plate is then free to drop away from the pan, allowing easy access to all of the contacting surfaces. The Easy Clean slide gate assembly is available in single or multi-channel arrangements and can also be retrofitted to existing conveyor pans.
Proportioning Slide Gate
The Proportioning Slide Gate is designed to reliably discharge from 0-100% of the product stream through a given gate opening. The gate is actuated by a rod lock air cylinder to position the UHMW gate plate at up to 7 pre-set opening positions. The opening positions are field adjustable. The Proportioning Slide Gate is provided in either Easy Clean or ECO configurations for single or multi-channel arrangements.
The Pivot Gate offers maximum sealing security for minimal dust leakage without the use of an elastomeric seal in the product stream. The Pivot Gate uses spring loaded UHMW seals to press against the edges of a stainless steel gate plug that is flush fit in an opening in the conveyor pan bottom. The contact between the gate plug and the seal is a shear contact which wipes the contacting surfaces clean with each gate closing and prevents material buildup.
The Plug Gate is designed to meet 3A Dairy Standards for maximum sanitation and protection of the product stream from contamination and features all welded stainless steel construction with no fasteners in the product stream. The Plug Gate is designed for quick disassembly for ease of cleaning and can be equipped with a removable white Nitrile seal to minimize dust leakage.
Dust-tight pan covers are available for just about every style of Slipstick conveyor. Covers may be flanged for connection to other equipment, interlocked for access restriction, and may be clamped and/or hinged for ease of sanitation maintenance. Pan cover sections are designed to be easily accessible by production staff and require no tools or special equipment for access or removal. Covers can be made of stainless steel, plexi-glass or a wide variety of other materials. Access ports and viewports may be specified. Stationary covers may also be employed with external supports.
SCREENS – SANITARY OR INDUSTRIAL VERSIONS AVAILABLE
Wire mesh screens are lightweight and easily changed out. Stretcher bars are used along the crimped edges to pull the screens taught. Optional ball decks can be supplied to keep finer mesh screens from blinding over.
Perforated screens can be manufactured with custom openings (square, slotted, round) as well as from a variety of materials. Panels can be bolted in or clamped in place for easy removal.
For heavy duty screening applications, dewatering and non-blinding, grizzly screens are a good choice. From stainless tri-wire to hardened round bars, we can supply what you require.
