THis is the new basic sketch where we will flaps as to start or stop pouring of material…It will be operated on lever
Let me know what you think
We can use lever operated mechanism with following ideas

  • Limit switches and servo operated slide gates
  • limit switches and pneumatic operated slide gates
  • directly lever operated flap gates
  • cam follower operated slide gates

I would like to go with lever operated as you are making this for small scale workers
Pneumatic after a certain time have to be replaced and it will become costly.
Cams are cheap but they break easily
So I would suggest lever operated.

Yeah lever operated mechanism will be cheap and sturdy . I am thinking about response time that can be achieved with it. Can we measure and shut gates with around +/- 5% ?
