Shear Gates are designed for use in both water and sewage plants for filling or emptying tanks, for low pressure sludge discharge lines, and similar applications. They are recommended for use in lines of low seating pressure only, and are furnished in sizes 4" - 30" with flanged end connections.
The wedges that seat the gate are bolted on to permit replacement without the expense of a new frame if wedges should become worn. Standard length of lifting handle is 2 feet for all size gates. Extended handles are also available.
