Pneumatic-conveying fluidizer

Company offers a new method of installation for its 2-in. diameter Mini Fluidizer disks. More pneumatic conveying options are now available for moving dry materials in pipes, chutes and small hoppers with easier installation owing to the Fast-Fit Kit, which requires only the drilling of a 1-1/8-in. diameter hole. The Fluidizer is then inserted from outside the vessel or pipeline; an alignment plate correctly positions its stem for easy attachment and a retaining cable assists in trouble-free installation of gasket, washer and nut. The Mini-Fluidizer suits tight curvature chambers down to 4-in. diameter to keep product from bridging, rat holing or hanging up in corners.

Manufacturer-cited product advantages include superior sealing properties, optimized air volume and an original durable design that will not tear, crack, wear prematurely or clog. Numerous combinations of stems, fittings and airlines are available with models for high pressure/low volume or low pressure/high volume air systems.
