A Vortex Titan Slide Gate (TSG) is used to isolate the storage hopper from the loading station. Upon a truck entering the loading station, the Vortex Loading Spout is extended to where the discharge point is within inches of the truck bottom. The TSG is opened to begin the loadout process. As materials fill, the flared skirt encompasses the peak of the material pile. This allows an air withdrawal to capture and remove fine dust particles from the area.
