Silicone rubber Heaters for Hydraulic Lift Gates
May 2, 2022
Hydraulic Lift Gates are attached to fences in locations that require security. These vertical pivot gates and security fences are specified during construction because they are designed to deter theft and, for some applications, are built to withstand impacts from vehicles going up to 100 MPH. They are used in areas that often have frequent vehicle deliveries or high traffic such as:
- Rail yards
- Car dealerships
- Government grounds/buildings
- Residential communities
- Private property
Vertical lift gates can operate in a variety of environmental conditions. However, cold and freezing temperatures can negatively affect the hydraulic systems that power the gates. Some components, such as rubber and electronics, risk being damaged in low temperatures and hydraulic fluid becomes more viscous, causing inconsistent distribution.
Tempco Silicone Rubber Heaters offer an affordable heating solution for freeze protection in hydraulic lift gates or vertical pivot gates no matter where they are utilized. These flexible heaters warm the hydraulic cylinders and reservoirs as well as the control boxes. They are designed for these systems with the following features:
- Heater dimensions: 6 in x 20 in
- Preset thermostat that opens at an ambient temperature of 50°F and closes at an ambient temperature of 70°F.
- Optional control boxes are available and are custom designed for gate size, application, and location
In this growing market, the demand for hydraulic lift gates is greater than ever before and manufacturers are working to meet industry needs. Because lift gates often operate 24/7, component reliability is crucial. Tempco is prepared to manufacture reliable flexible heaters at a rate that will keep up with gate manufacturing needs.
