Air Cannons For Silos and Hoppers

A Proven Solution to Bridging and Build Up

Bridging in silos results in costly downtime and lost production. Build up results in lost storage and higher inventory costs. Build up can also result in expensive clean out costs when contractors are regularly hired to clean out a silo.

  • INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY
  • LOWER INVENTORY COSTS
  • ELIMINATE SILO CLEAN OUT

The powerful blasts from the air cannons act directly on the material in the silo causing bridges to collapse and build up to break loose.

Air Blasters are an excellent choice to these materials and applications:

Air Blasters are supplied as a system including mount plates, solenoid valves, check valve, airline kits, and sequencer-timer. The size and number of air cannons are determined by the size and shape of the vessel, characteristics of the material and the desired outcome. Systems are designed to ensure material flow or to restore lost storage capacity or both. High temperature air cannons are available with special materials for operation in ambient temperature up to 400º F.

A direct blast design, lightweight piston, short piston travel and aerodynamically designed exhaust windows on a Global air cannon all result in a more powerful, efficient blast than external valve designs.

Global air cannons are available with 2.5", 4", and 6" discharges with carbon steel or stainless steel construction.
