Air Cannon System

September 2, 2008
The patent-pending SIX SHOOTER air cannon system has integral controls that allow one air cannon to supply powerful blasts to improve material flow at up to six points in a vessel. It provides a powerful blast of air to improve the flow of bulk materials through storage and process vessels. Applications include the recovery of solids from storage bins and silos and the elimination of buildup in cement plant preheater towers. This system uses double-braided stainless steel hoses to reach up to six discharge ports from a central location. By serving multiple outlets from one air reservoir, it is ideal for installations where multiple discharge points are located in close proximity. By separating the air cannon from the discharge points, the unit shelters its working components from dust, gases, and high-temperature conditions, making it ideal for high-temperature, high-dust, and high-stress applications.
