The W10 WorXgate is a weld-on, automatic locking, low cost replacement for older generation gates. Manual locking gates were typically used on older hopper cars and if these manual locks are not disengaged before a power gate opener is used, it can destroy these older gates. The W10 is an economical solution for replacing these older manual locking gates.
This W10 is based on the simple side and front ledge design that was highly popular on older outlet gates. These ledge style gates do not have seals, but do come equipped with automatic inertia locks and high strength drive components.
These gates are simpler and easier to install because of their extended wings. Having these extended wings eliminates the labor and skill required to try and cut the existing gate off the car without damaging the portion of the hopper that extends inside the gate. To install this W10 gate the old gates must be cut off above the existing weld seam at the specified location (Typically 1” above the existing weld seam). The hopper on the car is shortened, but the extended hopper wings will make up for this and should weld right into place.
Cutting the original gates off above the weld flange forms a shorter car hopper, creating the foundation for the W10 design. Shorter car hoppers allow for shallower gate hopper angles below the car attachment point that create a smaller gate frame and doorplate. This doorplate and frame use less material and contribute to the extreme economies of this gate. Also, the smaller doorplate design is still typically larger than the original gates.
