Discharge options

End discharges

All models of simplexes are furnished with standard flanged end discharge chute. Since many applications require specially designed chutes, a wide variety of special end discharge chutes are available. Typical of these chutes are those with high-low level controls and divided chutes with selective valves that are either manual or electrically operated.
