Using water control gates that effectively manage high levels of water pressure is an essential responsibility for many public facilities and water delivery systems. If you are an engineer whose site or project demands effective high head water control, it is critical that you work with a partner who can help you understand the needs of your project and provide the required support. One of the water control strategies you should consider for underground tunnels, sewers and other high-pressure sites is the use of wedge gates. The use of wedge gates in Australia controls water for head pressures typically greater than 8m. Penstocks with wedge locking features control high head flows, preventing leakage on round, rectangular, or square openings, and are manufactured from aluminium or stainless steel materials depending on the needs of each project.
Each project is different, whether you are seeking support for water, wastewater control and delivery systems, or facilities. As such, it is essential that you find wedge gate manufacturers who take the unique needs of your project into consideration, instead of offering a generic product. In addition to making gates that fit the exact orifice and specifications of your project, your wedge gate manufacturers should be able to provide adequate seals, accommodate flush or raised sills, and include other features that will tailor the gate for your site.
What to Look for in a Company that Makes Wedge Gates in Australia
To choose a company that can provide you with custom wedge gates in Australia, look for a business that has developed a reputation for flexibility in custom manufacturing gate products designed to cater for high head water pressures. Businesses that cater to a spectrum of variously sized clients will be more likely to have the resources and the knowledge necessary to provide you with a gate that meets all your project’s individual needs. Typically, these companies are the ones that have existed (and succeeded) long enough to diversify their operations, which allows them to expand both their design and production capabilities. They should also be willing to consult with you in depth, to make sure that their solutions suit your project exactly.
