Stop logs are typically used to control open channel flow and are installed utilizing a lifting device or overhead crane. A variety of material of constructions are available such as aluminum, carbon or stainless steel. Mounting methods include embedding the guides in concrete or attaching the guides to the face of the concrete.
For Flow and Level Control in Open Channels
- Low weight, easy handling
- Resilient seat (standard) along the bottom of each stop log
- Latching lever provided to engage/disengage stop logs
Aluminum Stop Logs
Aluminum, because of it's low weight and ease of handling, is a popular choice for many stop log installations. A resilient seal is standard along the bottom of each stop log. Additional seals can be placed in the guides if lower leakage is required. Guides are mounted on the face of the concrete or embedded. Stop logs are normally put in place using a lifting device and overhead crane. A latching lever on the lifting device is provided to engage or disengage the stop logs.
Stainless Steel Stop Logs
Stainless steel construction provides high corrosion resistance and many years of service with minimal maintenance. The stop log guide is made of UHMWPE, and contains the EPDM seal. The bottom seal on each log is also made of EPDM, and seals the sill or the log below. All logs are designed to be interchangeable. When required, a stainless steel lifting device is supplied for each log width.
