Sluice gate

A sluice gate is a fitting, most commonly used in water treatment, designed to regulate or shut off the flow: emergency, routine shut-off, for repair or maintenance, process shut-off. Large sluice gates, as a rule, have electrical control, while small ones are made with manual control.

Sluice gates

There are several main types of sluice gates according to their characteristics:

  • in-channel installation without concreting;
  • installation with concreting;
  • direct mounting on the chamber wall;
  • deep gates;
  • sliding gates with hoisting mechanism;
  • emergency self-closing gates;
  • for round channels;
  • regulating, with a spillway.

Emergency sluice gates operate in the Open/Close mode. That is, 100% of the channel or pipeline section is free or blocked.

Process gates have the function of blocking only a part of the channel or pipeline to allow a specified flow rate of water. Process pipelines also include regulating pipelines with a spillway, which are also designed to pass the required amount of water, but the water flow takes place through the spillway of the sluice gate in the upper part.

Advantages of the sluice gates

  • made of stainless steel (AISI 304 or AISI 316);
  • high maintainability due to the simplicity of the design;
  • in the case of a sluice gate with an electric drive, the automated process control is possible.
