Water Control Gates
Since 1977, Whipps Inc. has provided the highest quality and performance water control gates in the industry. Headquarted in Athol, MA they have deep roots in the New England Water, Wastewater and Hydropower markets. After 45 years in business there is not much we haven't seen.
Aluminum Slide Gates
Aluminum gates are fabricated by welding together extruded frame members. An economical yet rugged option compared to other materials, extruded aluminum is combined with flexible ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW) and Neoprene seat/seals, to provide a heavy-duty assembly. Every gate is made to order which allows us the ability to meet every customers needs.
Stainless Steel Slide Gates
Stainless Steel Gates offer high performance and long life in designs which accommodate a wide range of mounting arrangements and flow conditions. Rugged, reinforced stainless steel construction is combined with tough, flexible ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW) seat/seals, to provide a heavy-duty assembly. Flush bottom closure is provided by a resilient bottom seal.
Aluminum Stop Logs have been used for many years to contain water in ponds, tanks, or channels. They are used in applications where their installation or removal is required infrequently. Historically, stop logs have been made from squared timbers as their name suggests. The availability of wood in the sizes, quality and quantity to make traditional stop logs has become increasingly difficult. The lack of dimensional stability in wood also makes it very difficult to provide timber stop logs with predictable leakage characteristics.
Stop gates feature an extruded metal or break formed plate section to act as a guide for the gate slide. The guide can be embedded in side walls or mounted on the face of a rectangular flume or conduit. The gate consists of an aluminum or stainless steel plate which can be reinforced if necessary, and has hand holes or handles for manual opening of the gate. A hand-pull gate is an economical way to divert water in rectangular channels.
Flap Gates are used for backflow prevention in gravity flow; pump discharge and tidal applications. Fabricated Flap Gates offer high performance and long life in designs that accommodate a wide range of mounting arrangements and flow conditions. Rugged, reinforced construction is combined with a resilient seal to provide a heavy-duty, low leakage flap gate. Reinforced rubber flap gates, or full metal flap gates are available in standard or custom sizes.
Telescoping valves available in sizes ranging from 4" up to 18" (consult factory for larger applications). Slip tube construction in stainless steel, brass or PVC with plain or v-notch top. Screw stem operated, rising and non-rising, or rack and pinion operators.
