Titan Slide Gate Handling Titanium Ore

Published: June 15, 2020

Client: Metals Manufacturer – Western US

Material Handled: Titanium Ore

Size and Weight: 6” (152 mm) – 45 lbs. (20 kg)


This hand-wheel actuated Vortex Titan Slide Gate was manufactured with a “dead pocket” special service inlet.

Once installed, initial material conveyed through the gate is trapped within the dead pocket opening. Subsequent conveyed material impacts on the previously trapped material.

This type of insert (sometimes called a “rock box”) can be incorporated to limit wear from abrasive material.


The gate is installed beneath a product bin and is being used as a maintenance gate.
