AirSweep material activation system

Friday, 01 November, 2019 | Supplied by: Valve Distributors Pty Ltd


The AirSweep material flow system is designed to ensure the flow and prevent blockages of bulk materials in silos, bins, hoppers and chutes. Manufactured from high-grade steel, the system is suitable for a range of materials such as brewers grain, chocolate, grains, flour, hops, meal, oat hulls, rice bran, salts, starch and sugar.

Each nozzle directs a high-pressure/high-volume, 360° burst of compressed air or gas between the material and vessel wall to lift and sweep stagnated material back into the flow stream. Up to 2.4 m diameter of material is activated with each pulse from the nozzle, without damage, vibration, stress or wear to container walls. The system’s patented valve design uses one moving part, ensuring immediate reseal after each pulse of the nozzle to prevent clogging and material build-up.

Features include: reducing time- and labour-intensive hammering, rodding and shutdowns for vessel clean-out; reducing flushing/cleaning time between product runs; improving batch uniformity; and easy cleaning and maintenance due to the system being mounted on the outside of the vessel.

Suitable for a range of industries including food processing, feed and grain, aggregate and mining, pharmaceutical processing, and chemical processing, the system can eliminate bridging, ratholes and build-up. It can be easily installed on metal, concrete, wood or fibreglass units.
