Mini-Fluidizer Promotes Material Flow in Pipes and Chambers

February 5, 2013

Solimar Pneumatics has added a smaller version of its popular disk-type fluidizer. This 2-in.-diam Mini Disk fits in pipes, chambers, chutes, and small hoppers to enhance flow of powders and dry bulk material in pneumatic conveying systems. Because of its compact size, the Mini-Disk fits in curvatures as small as 4 in. In all applications, these fluidizers prevent bridging, rat holing, and material hang-ups. The aeration of the disk fluidizer utilizes directional air flow along the wall of the chamber or pipe 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 or pipe wall, there is minimum back pressure. This design advantage also prevents airline plugging. All Solimar aerators are compatible with food grade materials and are FDA approved.
