Published: November 23, 2020

Material Handled: Canola Seed

Size and Weight: 9.5” x 33.5” (241 mm x 850 mm), 560 lbs. (254 kg)


This pneumatically actuated Vortex Titan Slide Gate is modified into a Vortex Titan Ladder Gate containing two identically sized openings that open or close simultaneously.

The blade and inlet liners are constructed of abrasion-resistant steel (400 BHN) to address wear from the material handled.

Confirmation of blade position is accomplished via proximity switches.


The gate replaces a problematic gate installed at the bottom of a bin discharge.
