Discharge gate

Article-Discharge gate

The co. releases its patented FastBack Revolution proportional discharge gate to keep the main product supply flowing as it allocates proportional amounts to individual weigher/bagger stations. Downstream stations will no longer have to wait for the product, and the discharge gate will also eliminate the product damage caused by “chopping” slide gates. The product’s cylindrical outlet rotates to divert a portion of the main product flow and to prevent product breakage, seasoning loss and seasoning buildup.
