Air-Tight Blast Gates

Blastgate

Product Overview

Ruwac USA manufactures air-tight blast gates that are used in industrial dust extraction, and kept in the closed position until the vacuum source is needed. These blast gates increase the efficiency of the vacuum system by closing off inactive segments, thus increasing the vacuum pressure at other active areas. The average blast gate, whether manually or automatically activated, leaks air and does not completely preserve the vacuum suction for actively open vacuum ports. This creates less than desired vacuum pressure and makes picking up even the smallest particles more difficult.
