City staff is looking to replace existing cast iron equipment manufactured by Rodney Hunt in the early 1980's. Over the years the cast iron gates, bronze stems, and frames have started to corrode and bronze stems have sheared from the repetitive open and closing. New gates and stems will be made of Stainless Steel 316 to withstand corrosion and provide more strength to keep stems from shearing. Rodney Hunt parts will be manufactured to exact same dimensions for easier replacement of retrofit equipment. New stainless shafts have specific type threading that is machined only by Rodney Hunt. Specific threading will work with existing lift gate operators that are still operational with new equipment.
