Hand Crank Titan Slide Gate Handling Metallurgical Coke

Published: August 24, 2020

Client: Manufacturer / Supplier, Northeast US

Material Handled: Metallurgical Coke

Size and Weight: 16” (406 mm) – 96 lbs. (44 kg)


The Vortex Titan Slide Gate Hand Crank Model features a non-rising stem geared to close through a standing column of material if necessary (five revolutions of the crank move the blade one inch).

To address the tiny size of the material handled (6-20 mesh), the gates were manufactured with fine material bonnet seals and polymer end seals (no displacement pocket).


The gates are being used as maintenance gates beneath product silos. Metallurgical coke is a basic raw material used for the production of pig iron and steel.
