Processors of dry bulk materials can improve discharge efficiency in silos, bins, weigh hoppers and filters while conserving compressed air with the Solimar Fluidizer Control System. This timer-controlled system allows adjustment of airflow intervals and duration resulting in reduced compressed air consumption and energy savings.
The system works with Solimar’s patented disk-type Fuidizers proven in thousands of dry bulk applications. The silicone disks provide uniform flow along the bin wall and discharge through aeration and hopper vibration to prevent rat-holing, bridging and compacting. The durable disk Fluidizers design will not tear, harden or crack. The Control System can be used to adjust from one to 32 Fluidizers.
With the System, Fluidizers can be operated only when needed. Pulsating the Fluidizers through the solid-state controller provides more effective movement of dry bulk materials and alternating airflow to the Fluidizers can assist in more complete discharge. Solimar provides recommendations for placement of aerators and controller operation based on successful applications with more than 120 dry bulk materials.
The complete Control package is delivered with enclosed timer control boards, air surge tanks, solenoids, air regulators, tubing, fittings and installation/operating instructions. Solimar Fluidizers are available in two diameters (4” and 2”) with numerous combinations of stems, fitting and airlines including high pressure/low volume or low pressure/high volume. Material compatible silicone rubber in blue or white (FDA approved) or black or white EPDM (FDA approved) and Orange Silicone for temps to 450°F (230°C). Metal detectable Fluidizers are also available.
