Sluice Gates are sliding gates used to control the flow of water. They are fabricated most commonly in stainless steel in either Square / Rectangular or Round shape and are also available in a wide range of dimensions and for different pressure heads.
Sluice gates for each project are different and are designed to meet the actual project requirements. Actuation is possible with Handwheel or gearbox or Electric actor or Bevel gear with a deported handwheel.
A sluice gate is provided in the path of a river or a stream, to regulate the flow of water. For doing so, the sluice gate is made to move up and down with the help of rollers fixed to the vertical plates which travel on vertical rails called guides. These rails are fixed on piers or vertical walls. In between these two skin plates, a number of I-beams are provided horizontally to withstand the water pressure. As the water pressure varies with the depth, the spacing between the I-beams is lesser at the bottom than at the top of the sluice gate. It is mainly a movable gate allowing water to flow under it. When a sluice is lowered, water may spill over the top, in which case the gate operates as a weir. Usually, a mechanism drives the sluice up or down. This may be a simple, hand-operated, chain pulled/lowered, worm drive or rack and pinion drive, or it may be electrically or hydraulically powered.
Dutco Tennant LLC supplies a range of cast sluice gates. Gate frames are all single piece castings. The guides are cast as an integral part of the frame to eliminate the leak path inherent with bolt-together parts. The loads imposed on the gate leaf are carried by the continuous ironsides. The sluice gates are designed using solid bronze wedges and sealing faces. The bronze seals are impacted into dove-tailed grooves machined in the cast iron frames and leaves. Cast leaves are reinforced with horizontal and vertical ribs. The nut pocket is heavily reinforced on the vertical centreline and is integrated into the design of the horizontal and vertical ribs. Dutco Tennant LLC has been able to earn an honorable position in the market of the Middle East and GCC region as a trusted supplier of various kinds of industrial and engineering solutions. With our goal to meet the diverse demands of the customers with uncompromised quality and punctuality, we have been earning appreciation among the consume.
