Sluice Gate Valves

Dependable End of Line Design

Sluice gates are true end of line valves, designed to hold back water with minimal leakage in applications ranging from drainage pipes to effluent ponds to distributor boxes.

Long Live the Mud Valve!
So reliable it's legendary.

Standard Features

1. Cast Ductile Iron Design

As opposed to fabricated parts, our cast parts have less potential for failure over time.

2. Self-Contained Assembly

Our unique assembly doesn’t require rails to guide the disc, allowing for easy installation.

3. High Unseating Pressure Tolerance

With an unseating pressure rating of 50psi, our sluice gates perform better than the industry standard.

4. Extension Stem Operation

Our sluice gates can be easily operated by using an extension stem with 2” nut and socket, floor stand or hand wheel.

5. Stainless Steel Stem

Our sluice gates are constructed with a stainless steel stem to prevent corrosion and ensure smooth operation.

6. Ball Bearing Adjustment Screws

For our larger models (12”), special ball bearing adjustment screws help to ensure a fully even positive seal.

Operation

The sluice gate is a non-rising stem type. The gate is opened by rotating the operating mechanism in a counter clockwise (open left) direction. The gate is closed by rotating the operating mechanism in a clockwise direction.

The operation mechanism may be a 2” square nut attached directly to the operating stem of the valve, a 2” square nut attached to the valve operating stem by an extension stem and coupling, or hand wheel attached to the valve operating stem by an extension stem and coupling.

The disc seat is forced against the seat in the body by a wedging action. The wedging action is created by two (2) adjustable bronze wedges mounted on the gate disc and the cast iron guide mounted to the gate body. See Drawing A-3500, items (6) and (3).

Maintenance

Visual inspection of the bronze seats and wedges are recommended when the gate is accessible. Gate operation should be observed to ensure the gate is opening and closing evenly against the wedges. Adjust bronze wedges as necessary to correct wedging action. Lubricate stem and stem nut each time maintenance is performed.

Installation

The gate flange is drilled to the 125-lb. standard template for mounting on flanged pipe drilled and typed for studs. Flange holes straddle the vertical centerline.
