Mini-Fluidizer Promotes Flow in Pipes, Chambers

March 13, 2012

Solimar Pneumatics has added a version of its disk-type fluidizer. The 2-in. diam Mini Disk fits in pipes, chambers, chutes, and small hoppers with curvatures as small as 4 in. In all applications, this fluidizer prevents bridging, ratholing, and material hang-ups. The aeration of the disk fluidizer utilizes directional air flow along the wall of the chamber to loosen product and move it to the discharge point. Gentle vibration is provided at the outer edges of the disk to keep powders and bulk solids flowing. Because the disk seals tightly against the chamber wall, there is minimum back pressure. This design also prevents airline plugging. All Solimar aerators are compatible with food-grade materials and are FDA approved. The silicone material used on the standard and Mini Disk will not tear or absorb moisture.
