Blast Gate Fittings let you “turn-off” the suction from your dust collector to use other machines connected to other branches of your system. This blast gate has the same tapered 4" O.D. port on...
• Blast gates act as a "shut-off" or valve for the suction from your dust collector
• Tapered port each side of the sliding gate fits inside most 4” dust collection hose
• Sliding gate has a stop to prevent the plate from coming out of the housing

Not quite adequate
Its flimsy construction. Its welded sides break weld with a slight sidewise or downward pressure, such as the weight of a 2.5" hose hanging from the ceiling mounted tubing. Solution was to drill and pop-rivet the sides back together. Six rivets later I had working blast gates. Not unique problem as all five blast gates broke at their side welds, necessitating repairs.
great buy, we'll built, works perfectly
great gate valve
