TransFlow Fluidising Media

Aeration Pads

 

Application

TransFlow Aeration Pads are used to fluidise fine powdered, bulk materials to start and maintain flow out of new or existing hoppers, bins and silos and the like. These pads distribute air or gas uniformly causing positive flow of the stored material. Materials that have sluggish or sticky flow characteristics such as lime, flour, soda ash, bran, clay, carbon black, TiO2 , sawdust, detergents and resins can be successfully handled by TransFlow Aeration Pads.

 

Trans-Flow Pads are increasingly being used to retrofit to existing conveyor inlets and outlets where product build-up and poor flow are common.

 

Design

The pads are constructed with TransFlow aeration media. This media is a multi layer wire mesh constuction with a very smooth finished contact surface that creates evenly distributed airflow. This finished layer also produces a layer of air that separates the bulk material from the media making it easy for the material to slide.

 

TransFlow Pads are extremely efficient due to the unique internal baffle design and all welded contruction. The fluidising media is welded to the back plate which provides 15% more surface area compared to other designs. Being an all metal construction, TransFlow pads are almost indestructible.

 

TransFlow Aeration Pads can be cleaned chemically or with steam and dry quickly. They do not flake, chip or degrade and are abrasion and corrosion resistant.
