Handling Synthetic Slag Premix with the Titan Slide Gate

Published: May 27, 2020

Client: Slag Blending Facility, Great Lakes Area – US

Material Handled: Synthetic Slag Premix

Size and Weight: 12” (305 mm) – 126 lbs. (57 kg)


Twelve Vortex Titan Slide Gates were specified for this synthetic slag blending facility. The gates are manufactured with abrasive resistant steel inlet liners and blades to address wear from the material handled.

Square to square inlet transitions connect gates to individual material holding bins – matching each bin’s bolt hole pattern.

Electric actuators were requested, due to the facility’s northern location and concerns of air lines freezing up during winter months.


A precise weigh belt feeder system measures and delivers the various materials as required – providing custom-blended formulations engineered to meet customer specific metallurgical requirements for the steel industry.
