TUFGATE Aluminum Stop Gates are widely used in wastewater treatment plant design. Designed for flow control with minimal seepage. The gates consist of 1/4" aluminum plates reinforced with aluminum structural shapes. The gates can be designed in-house for most any width and head.
The frames are aluminum extrusions, alloy 6063-T6 and incorporate a continuous concrete anchor. Embeded as well as face mounted frames are available. Anti-friction inserts are an option for each frame type. The inserts serve to reduce the required lifting capacity of the gates.
Stop Gate Specification
1) Stop Gate Guides are to be extruded aluminum, alloy 6063-T6 or 6061-T6. If required, the stop gate frames shall incorporate an anti-friction UHMW insert to reduce the coefficient of friction to 0.2 or less.
2) Stop Gate Disc shall be a minimum of .25" thick aluminum plate, alloy 6061-T6. The disc shall incorporate a lift handle for hand operation. The disc shall be stiffened as required to meet the loading requirements of the intended application with a minimum of deflection. Design calculations shall be furnished upon request.
3) Surfaces in contact with concrete shall be protected with a shop coat of bitumastic paint.
4) Aluminum Stop Gates shall be "TUFGATE" as manufactured by Thompson Fabricating, LLC (B'ham., AL.) or approved equal.
