Solimar Pneumatics offers a new method of installation for its Fluidizer disks. Now upgrading to the superior aeration of the Fluidizer can be accomplished easily for silos, hoppers, and bins. The new fast-fit kit only requires a two-in.-diam hole to be drilled. The Fluidizer is then inserted from outside the vessel. An alignment plate correctly positions the Fluidizer stem for easy attachment, and a retaining cable assists in trouble-free installation of gasket, washer, and nut. The Fluidizer provides fast discharge of powder and bulk solids for many applications including silos, hoppers, bins, and trailers. It prevents rat-holing and bridging by utilizing air pressure to move the material, while gently vibrating the vessel wall. Advantages include superior sealing properties, optimized air volume, and an original durable design that will not tear, crack, wear prematurely, or clog like fabric pads. FDA-approved materials are used for food compatibility with models that operate in temperatures up to 450°F. A metallic detectable version is also available for food applications. Numerous combinations of stems, fittings, and airlines are available with models for high-pressure/low-volume or low-pressure/high-volume air systems.
