Abort Gate for Dust Collection Equipment

Jackson Center, Pa.

Imperial Systems, Inc. Abort Gates are an important part of any duct spark or leak detection system.
Proper Uses for a High Speed Abort Gate:
• An abort gate can be located prior to the inlet of a dust collection system to prevent a flame or burning ember from entering the dust collection system. This method is used if extinguishment from your spark detection equipment is not adequate or not an option.
• Leak detection or broken bag sensors can activate the abort gate in the event of a filter failure. The abort gate can be placed on the return air side of the dust collector to redirect contaminated air to safe location.
An abort gate is just another way to keep personnel and dust collection equipment protected.
The Standard Features include: heavy-duty fully welded steel construction, painted OSHA safety yellow, 110 volt control panel, manual gate reset by a hand-crank actuator, gate accelerating springs, fail-safe electro-magnets, steel gate seals and limit switches for gate position indication.  Electric gate reset, weather hood, inlet and outlet transitions, support structure and ladder and service platform are all available optional features.
Imperial Systems, Inc. abort gates are 100% compatible with all brands of fire & explosion suppression equipment!  All units are factory tested prior to shipment.
