The Flushing Gate flushing gate is designed to remove settled debris from retention tank and reservoir floors, as well as sewer inverts, using a single flush. This is accomplished by the sudden release of the in-system water stored behind the flushing gate, released as a single powerful flushing wave. The flushing wave progresses down the entire length of the flushway, pushing the settled debris ahead of it. The re-suspended debris is carried by the flush water to the treatment plant for disposal. The maximum flushing distance is limited only by the amount of water stored behind the gate and the slope of the flushway.


The Flushing Gate is normally in the closed or latched position. It is only pressurized or opened when flushing is required. The Flushing Gate cylinder is housed completely within the gate frame limits, thereby not requiring additional side clearance and reducing the likelihood of debris accumulation.


The Flushing Gate operates using a single acting hydraulic cylinder controlled by a low pressure (200 psi) hydraulic power unit. The Flushing Gate can also be operated using an optional pneumatic cylinder (<85 psi) where compressed air is available or preferred.
