Shear Gates

WATERMAN C-16 SHEAR GATES are designed for filling or draining tanks in treatment plants, for low pressure low sludge drainage lines and other similar applications.  They are ideal for tanks where sludge is likely to stick as the shearing action on closure scrapes this material free.  These gates are used in low seating pressure applications only.
