AERATION PADS & SYSTEMS

 

Granular, free flowing material is easily discharged from a silo or hopper by forcing air between the product particles. The air that is introduced reduces inter-particle friction, thereby preventing the material from arching or bridging in the silo. The product in a silo is aerated by installing a number of aeration pads into the conical discharge of a hopper or silo.

 

Bulk Technik’s range of aeration pads ensures that air is evenly introduced into the material over a large area and at the correct positions of the silo cone. The aeration pads are fitted with a permeable fabric that can easily be washed or replaced by removing the external covers.

 

As an alternative we also supply aerator pads or commonly also referred to as airbrators, vibrator cones, or flow pads. The airbrators both aerate the product as well as vibrate inside of a silo or hopper, thereby ensuring material flows freely and does not bridge or arch inside the tank. The aerator pads are ideal for retrofitting into a tank or bin because the only modifications which must be made to the tank is to drill a hole for each aerator pad through which the air supply is connected. The bin aerator pads can be fitted to both curved and flat walls and are supplied in industrial, food and pharmaceutical grades.

 

All additional equipment required to complete a silo aeration system can also be supplied, these include an air manifold, rubber tubing, solenoid valve as well as a filter/regulator unit.
