Slide Gate/Valves have numerous applications in bulk raw materials handling ranging from grain processing to mining. They usually comprise of a flat metal gate that slides on metal rollers, and based upon position, allow or prevent the flow of materials. They can also be used to regulate or blend more than one bulk raw material.
Electro-Sensors' Slide Gate Monitors are used on slide gates or valves to monitor critical position guarding against a fault condition that can result in costly process downtime, machine damage, and material waste. The optional TR400-SGA display provides the operator with immediate information on the position of the gate or valve.
