AWWA C560: Cast-Iron Slide Gates
DOD Adopted ANSI Approved Approved
This standard describes vertically mounted, cast-iron slide gates with full aperture closing, designed for either seating head, unseating head, or both, in ordinary water-supply and wastewater service. The gates are primarily used to shut off or throttle water or wastewater flow through a rectangular or round orifice, end of channel, or in-channel opening. The gates may be either conventional-closure or the flush-bottom-closure type and may open upward or downward. This standard also describes manual slide gate actuator mechanisms together with standard accessories. Power actuated mechanisms (including electric, hydraulic, or pneumatic) are described in ANSI/AWWA C541 and ANSI/AWWA C542.
The purpose of this standard is to provide the minimum requirements for cast-iron slide gates, including materials, general design, manufacture, testing, inspection, and shipment.
