D.J. Gongol and Associates, Inc. are the exclusive manufacturer's representatives for Golden Harvest, Inc. gates in the states of Iowa and Nebraska. Golden Harvest manufactures the innovative GH-9000 series upstream level control gate, which is certain to find widespread application in a variety of water and wastewater applications.

Upstream level control gate Upstream level-control gates are good for a variety of applications where it's important to keep a constant level of water in some source:
  • Wastewater Clarifiers. It's easier to control clarifier odors when the water level in the clarifier is kept constant. A GH-9000 upstream level-control gate can help keep the wastewater clarifier level constant, reducing odors without reducing the clarifier's capacity.

  • UV Disinfection Systems. UV disinfection systems need a constant water level to ensure that the bulbs remain immersed at all times. Instead of complicated, energy-wasting systems of PLC relays and modulating actuators, the GH-9000 works consistently with virtually no maintenance, no electrical power, and no user intervention. Lower initial cost alone makes the GH-9000 a superior choice, and the improved reliability, lower maintenance, and long-run operating costs (practically zero!) make the GH-9000 a clearly better choice.

  • Flood Control. The GH-9000 makes it easy to monitor and control flood control systems and retention ponds. With no user intervention required, the GH-9000 upstream level-control gate can be placed upstream from a stormwater retention basin, allowing more flow into the basin when storms occur and preserving basin capacity when it's not needed.

  • Wastewater Headworks Control. A GH-9000 level-control gate placed prior to the headworks in a wastewater plant can help equalize flows into the plant without the waste and complication of PLC relays and modulating actuators.

  • Recreational Water Reservoirs and Lakes. Constant lake and reservoir levels keep recreational users happy, and the simple but powerful GH-9000 upstream level control gate can keep water levels predictable and optimal without operator intervention.

The GH-9000 upstream level-control gate uses force-balance control to automatically maintain upstream water levels at a minimum of headloss. The gate contains a buoyant compartment on the upstream side, which is counterbalanced by a pair of ballasts. Once properly installed, the gate provides long-term service with precision control of upstream water levels, without requiring complicated and energy-consuming PLC controls and modulating gate actuators.

Long-term maintenance is virtually eliminated, requiring only occasional lubrication of the axis points. The Golden Harvest GH-9000 level-control gate can handle maximum flows from 4 CFS (2.58 MGD) to 2000 CFS (1,290 MGD).
