Solimar, from the United States, have customers in more than 60 countries, for its air fluidizers for silos and hoppers. Solimar fluidizers solve the problem thanks to a combination of three factors:
Aeration: loosens up the products allowing it to flow easier.
Directional air flow: the fluidizer disk forces air to move along the silo wall freeing up product and assuring good clean out.
Gentle vibration: keeps the product flowing without allowing it to compact or plug and breaks any bridges.
The silo fluidizer is connected just before unloading the product or a timer can be installed in order to control the operation. Solimar is suitable for all types of dry bulk material and for any kind of silo:
It can be installed on all types of silos and hoppers.
It does not cause damage to the structure since it only works with air.
It is easy to install from inside or outside the bin (EZ-In).
It is economical.
There are various models available, all of which are made of blue or white food grade silicone. The stems are made of steel, aluminum or stainless steel (different qualities).
Series 4300.These models are the most commonly used. They operate with pressurized air (1-2 bar) and a low air flow (15 - 30 m3/h).
Series 4400. These models are used for material that flows with more difficulty such as TiO2 and coal powder where more air flow is needed to move the product. They operate with an air pressure of 0.7-1.5 bar and an air flow of 40 - 70 m3/h.
Series 4500. These models operate with a large air flow (50-85 m3/h) and a low air pressure (0.3-0.7 bar).
Series S4800 These models are used for Tight Curvature Chambers 4’’ (100mm) diameter, Chutes Pipes, Small Hoppers and Corner Hang-ups. They operate with pressurized air (1-2bar) and a low flow (3,5-5 m3/h).
Other Disks. To be used under special conditions or circumstances.
This is an accessory that can be combined with the Solimar fluidizer to make installation easier from the outside when it is difficult to install from the inside or when the silos require frequent inspections. The EZ-In kit enables installation using an oval plate together with a unique rubber material gasket and a mounting plate. It comes in zinc plated steel and stainless steel.
