Two AWMA Combination Gates (double leaf gates) were recently exported to Indonesia to assist a Pulp and Paper Mill with their water management solutions.
The gates were manufactured from marine grade aluminium with stainless steel rising spindles, bevel gearboxes and manual handwheels. The gates were 3m x 3m in size, retrofitted to existing structures by AWMA’s installation team.
AWMA offer a wide range of multi-leaf water control gates for numerous applications. The benefits of AWMA’s multi-leaf gates is the versatility in operating gates, allowing for both undershot and overshot regulation as well as completely removing the gates for an unrestricted water way in peak flow conditions.
Benefits of dual leaf gates include versatility of gate operation with the ability to:
- Lower the top gate leaf to control flow through the culvert (overshot regulation)
- Once the top gate leaf is fully lowered, the 2 gate leaves can be joined and raised (combination of overshot and undershot regulation)
- Both gates may be raised clear of the water (unimpeded flow)
- Both gate leaves are lowered to restrict and regulate flow
