The brush itself is designed of hardened, annealed, spring steel sprigs secured in cast hubs to form a high density brush assembly. When the sprigs finally do wear out, they can easily be replaced in plant or returned to States Engineering Inc. for rebuilding.
The independent, four-way baffle system can be easily adjusted. And the aerated sand can be directed to any location within the flask. The quick adjustment design also reduces conversion time when changing flask sizes. The single brush model is available in sizes from 16” x 18” to 20” x 26”. While the double brush model is available in sizes from 20” x 32” to 26” x 38”.
The States Gate-O-Rator can be installed under new or existing hopper discharge gates where head room is available. And it can be mounted elsewhere, such as at discharge of conventional mullers, discharge of bucket elevators, and discharge from belt conveyors used as flask fillers.
