Converting Low GPH sluice to GoldHog Mats
As you can tell from the video.... the customer is not happy with his current setup. So we thought we'd post the fixes and recommendations here. It's kind of tough one to "fix" because of the notes below, but we'll do our best.
The system shown is fairly low gph so we have to use mats that are made for this. We can't use aggressive matting as the water is not DEEP enough and there isn't enough SPEED.
The water coming off the header box drops DOWN... into the sluice. Unlike ours which SHOOTS in and clears out the top. This can cause PILE UPS under the header box.
The sluice is fairly short... so we're limited as far as varying matting surfaces.
All that being said........ I've watched the video over and over and over. My GUT is telling me to run alternating Motherlode and DownDraft all the way down. Then play with the pitches (extreme variances) and see what happens.
