Stop logs are used for closing channels temporarily for performing revision or maintenance work on pumps, valves or building sections. They are also used for flood protection. Stainless Steel Stop Logs are mainly used in structures where the removal, installation, and replacement of the logs are expected frequently. When a large amounts of sewage water is passing through a stop log gate, it can cause difficulties to remove or place individual logs. Larger logs often require multiple people to position and lift the logs.
Previously wood was primarily used for creating stop logs, the lack of dimensional stability within this material makes it difficult to manufacture products with highly predictable leakage characteristics. For this, a leaking stop log used in a wastewater treatment plant can result in unwanted contamination of clean waters which is highly unwanted by you. Stop logs remain in constant and regular contact with water which may cause corrosion and reduce performance. As stainless steel is corrosion resistant which provides a significant amount of benefit.
Stop-log sections contain the dam and when they are sharp-edged, they have a highly increased rate of performance as far as tightness is concerned. Manufacturers often use U-Channels, U-shaped sections, or even T-sections with the double web for this purpose. For producing these sections as sharp-edged profiles, stainless steel strips are laser welded to form the desired shape. We supply Stop Logs which are designed for open channel installation in wastewater treatment plants, irrigation, hydraulic works, and hydro-electric power plants. Several logs which fit on top of each other in the frame form the slide. By adding or removing logs, the stop logs model allows controlling the flow of a channel in an economical way.Features –
