A Full Line of Industrial Ductwork Gates
US Duct offers a full and varied line of gates for industrial duct work and custom applications. US Duct gates - commonly called cut-offs and blast gates - serve a variety of purposes. From added safety to decreasing operations costs, gates are an essential part of any dust collection or industrial duct system. Full gates, half gates, blast gates and auto gates – any type of gate you might need – are all available from US Duct.
Full gates - These are cast aluminum body units with galvanized or SS steel blades that smoothly move in and out of the air stream to fully cut off the air or partially close off the duct so as to balance the system and direct the air. A thumb screw allows the gate to be locked in any position. These gates come with a raw end that will slide into a cut piece of duct. But they can also be fitted with a rolled lip collar or a flange. Available in sizes to 24”.
Half gates –Like the Full Gates, these are cast aluminum body units with galvanized or SS steel blades that smoothly move in and out of the air stream to fully cut off the air or partially close off the duct so as to balance the system and direct the air. A thumb screw allows the gate to be locked in any position. However these are designed to fit ONTO the duct once a slit for the blade has been cut. Once the unit has been aligned and screwed to the duct, the blade will move in and out of the air stream. Great for retrofitting a system without removing duct. Available in sizes to 18”.
Blast gates – These fabricated units have fully welded housing and a sealed rod that moves the blade in and out of the air stream. They are essentially air tight to atmosphere- NOT across the blade. They are recommended for high moisture systems where the standard gate may leak.
Automatic gates- utilize an electric solenoid to control compressed air as it is delivered to open and close pneumatic cylinders. The solenoids are available in varied voltages (12/24V AC/DC, 120 and 220 line voltage). They can be wired to any electrical source and are typically wired so that the gates open when the machine or process in need of dust/fume collection.
Automatic Full Gates- US Duct offers two kind of Automatic full gates. One is constructed by fabricating an angle iron flange that attaches to the standard aluminum gate. The second incorporates a sleek galvanized framed gate.
Automatic Air Tight Gates- US Duct offers the sleek galvanized frame gate in an air tight version. Round UHMW seals are pushed together by a resilient rubber. The blade ‘knifes’ between the seals as it closes. When open the seals press against one another to create a continuous seal.
Custom gates – need to fit a square peg into a round hole? US Duct can design and fabricate a gate for virtually any application. Contact US if you have a tough application that needs some special attention. We’ll get right on it.
