The miniature version of the proven Vibration Aerators. Suitable for silos and hoppers with small diameters. For particularly high demands, the VBSMI version is equipped with a stainless steel shaft. Our Micro Vibration Aerators are also made of a material with FDA approval and are thus approved for use with foodstuffs.
Vibration Aerators are used for material flow improvement and aeration of powders and granules. They combine material aeration with additional, light vibrations of the silo wall and represent a gentle alternative to compressed air knockers and pneumatic hammers, as they have a considerably lower structural load.
Installation of the Vibration Aerators is relatively simple. A hole is drilled in the wall of the silo or hopper, the Vibration Aerator is pushed through, tightened with a nut, and the compressed air supply is connected. Done!
Compressed air is discharged directly into the material via the silicone lip that rests against the inner wall of the silo. A variation of the working pressure changes the vibration strength of the silicone lip. Due to clocked operation and the maximum required working time of 5 seconds, the air consumption is extremely low.
Due to the design, damage to the silo wall is excluded even with abrasive products. The Vibration Aerators have a robust design and are self-cleaning. Additional non-return valves are not required, as the working pressure (2 bar) means that no product can get under the supple silicone lip. This is made of a silicone rubber with FDA approval, thus the use in the food sector is permitted.
Design, arrangement and quantity can be found in the data sheet.
