Flo-Lock Discharge Gate
The robust MTS Flo-Lock Discharge Gate safely and quickly closes bulk bag discharge spouts for operator tie off, allowing partial bag discharging of your materials. This robust gate is constructed from 1” thick machined stainless steel or aluminum, machined UHMW, and is actuated by two (2) large bore air cylinders. When the air cylinders apply force, the UHMW plates with a curved aperture move towards each other, cinching the bag discharge spout closed, and gathering it for easy operator tie off. The Flo-Lock gate will close on materials that may cause manual iris valves, pinch gates, and articulated rod type gates to fail. Unlike other designs, the Flo-Lock gate closes near the top of the discharge spout, allowing the existing discharge spout ties to be used. Gate is electrically interlocked for operator safety, and is available with variable position controls.
