Slide gate

Slide gate


  • EFM Slide Gates are used to control the discharge of bulk materials from hoppers, bins, silos or conveyors. A slide gate consists of a rigid frame mounted to the bottom of the storage device or conveyor. A slide plate is located inside the frame that either opens or closes against the flow of material.
  • EFM slide gates can be provided as a stand-alone component or as part of a complete bulk material handling system.
  • EFM designs and manufactures slide Gates for many industries including aggregate, cement, chemical, mining and wastewater treatment industries for controlling the flow of bulk materials.

Application Area:

  • Ideal for discharging dry to semi-fluid materials – free-flowing to sluggish.

Available configurations:

  • Can be actuated manually, pneumatically, electrically, or hydraulically.

Salient Features:

  • Wide range of construction materials – Carbon and Stainless steel based on the application.
  • Heavy-duty rollers with anti-friction bearings for withstanding head loads.
  • High force actuators to cut through upset conditions.
  • Dust-tight construction to eliminate dust emissions.
  • Custom seal design – to prevent material leakage.
