Fluidization of bulk materials with SIPERM® aeration components
Storage, mixing and discharge of bulk materials with average particle sizes of less than 0.2 mm frequently causes problems because these bulk materials do not flow freely and therefore are almost impossible to discharge.
They tend to agglomerate and form bridges and tunnels, particularly around the silo outlet, thereby obstructing the free flow of the material from the storage vessel.
Such low flowable materials include fine plastic powders, flour, pigments, soot, cement, pesticides etc. A proven solution for the problem-free handling of bulk solids with average grain sizes between 10 and 200 μm is the fluidization of the material using pneumatic aeration units made from highly porous SIPERM® materials.
