Titan Slide Gate to Handle Cement-Based Mortar Mix

Published: July 13, 2020

Client: Cement manufacturer, Central US

Material Handled: Cement-based mortar mix

Size and Weight: 10” (254 mm) – 77 lbs. (35 kg)


The Vortex Titan Slide Gate is designed to handle abrasive materials in gravity-fed applications. To combat wear, the gates contain abrasion resistant steel blades and liners.

Replaceable bonnet seals make in-line maintenance possible. Because of the “fineness” of the product handled, the gates were manufactured with a special polymer end seal.

Round to square inlet flanges and square to round outlet transitions were installed to match the shape of the conveying line.


Once blended, the mortar mix is conveyed to a bagging operation.
