TYPE: Silo/Hopper Discharge Vibration Aeration Equipment

MODEL: Solimar Disc Fluidizer

Solimar disc fluidizers promote the discharge of dry products from storage silos, dust collectors, weigh bins and IBC’s.

Solimar fluidizers provide a uniform flow of most dry bulk materials through aeration and hopper wall vibration that helps prevent bridging, ratholing and compacting.

Features

  • Aeration
    The disc loosens up product by allowing it to flow more easily.  Back pressure put air flow where it's needed the most, in the silo.  Discharge out of PD bulk truck cones, for fast discharge of bulk loads.
  • Directional Air Flow
    The fluidized disc forces air to move along the bin wall, loosening and moving product and assuring clearing.  Flow is promoted from the hopper wall, which helps to prevent ratholing.
  • Gentle Vibration
    Keeps the product flowing and moving without clogging or backups
  • No Air Line Plugging
    The disc seals tightly again the silo wall, ensuring and preventing plugged air lines
  • Durable Design
    Will not tear, acquire moisture, unaffected by temperatures up to 450° F (230° C)
  • Exterior Installation
    EZ-Kits are available for exterior installation without inner access to the bin or replacing outdated screen pads
