Ecogate Says Its New Airflow Gates Do It All


February 14, 2024 | Warren Shoulberg

If you need more than simple opening and closing functionality the new Precision Airflow Gates are an answer.

When your blast gate needs go beyond fundamental operational functionality, Precision Airflow Gates says it offers a higher degree of precision, critical for certain industry demands.

The latest development from Ecogate, the new Precision Airflow Gates are powered by a state-of-the-art precision motor, the company said. And these 24V DC gear motors are designed to be compatible with both its Rotating Blade Gates and Butterfly-Styles Gates. 

Equipped with position encoding, these motors offer a precise positioning resolution, the company said, allowing for 0.2-degree increments across the full 90-degree movement. “This level of control empowers industries that require meticulous airflow management. Operated via the industry-standard Modbus RTU, the gates also incorporate a pressure sensor that can be calibrated to measure air velocity and volume.

Precision Airflow Gate – Granular Control

“Certain manufacturing sectors demand exceptional control over airflow precision,” it said in making the introduction. “This need is especially acute in industries such as chemical processing, food packaging, car battery manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, biological and chemical labs and semiconductor manufacturing. These sectors are stringently regulated, adhering to specific standards at every stage of production.”

The new Precision Airflow Gates come in zinc-plated metal or stainless steel. They will be available for pre-order for sizes ranging from 2” to 26”. More information is available on the company’s website,
