Promote Solids Flow with Vibration and Aeration

Solimar's Fluidizer aerator releases compressed air through silicone disks mounted on silo bin walls, simultaneously using vibration and aeration to promote solids flow and prevent bridging, rat holing and compacting. The disk, which seals against the wall to keep the air line from becoming plugged, can withstand temperatures up to 350°F. It doesn't wear like fabric pads and resists tearing, hardening and cracking. The aerator can be used with high-pressure, low-volume compressed air or with low-pressure, high-volume blower air.

Eliminate Risks, Simplify Your Sanitization Process

When sanitization control is critical, dual conductivity measurements from one instrument is the answer! Pharmaceutical and biotech process piping systems require regular Clean-in-Place (CIP) chemical sanitization. A single two-channel Thornton Model 2000 Instrument or multi-channel 770MAX instrument can monitor both CIP and rinse operations using a sanitary sensor in each channel.
