Rodney Hunt tainter gates are used to control the flow of water or wastewater over a dam or drainage structure to provide wide, unobstructed openings.
For Spillway and Open Channel Flow Control
- Spillway and open channel flow control
- Field adjustable components
- Sturdy vertical T-ribs support the curved plate and are backed by wide-flanged beam supports that span the total opening width
- Low maintenance in difficult conditions

Rodney Hunt tainter gates are normally used to control the flow of water or wastewater over a dam or drainage structure to provide a wide and unobstructed opening. These gates, which are sometimes very large, are sturdily designed for long life and low maintenance in difficult conditions, but also incorporate a number of “designed-in,” installation and field-adjustment features.
