Title: SLURRY MIXER GATE HAVING ENHANCED EXTRACTOR PORTS
Abstract:
A discharge gate (22) is provided for delivering a mixed slurry from a gypsum slurry mixer (10), and includes a first extractor port (24) configured for generating a first density slurry for a first gypsum layer, and a second extractor port (26) configured for generating a second density slurry for a second gypsum layer. A channel (34) is defined by a front panel (30) and a side panel (32) of the discharge gate (22) for delivering the first and second density slurries from the slurry mixer. The first extractor port (24) extends semi-tangentially from the front panel (30) of the discharge gate (22), and is connected in fluid communication with the front panel (30) via the channel (34) and a first slurry passageway disposed within the first extractor port (24) for delivering the first density slurry.
