Series AS Air-Slide Flow-Aid Solution (4 Products)

Engineered to create and maintain material flow while eliminating sticky & tacky build-up, arching, rat holes, and blockages.

The Deca Air-Slide Flow-Aid System promotes and maintains material flow of dry, moist, hydroscopic, dense or entangled materials in any manufacturing or production process or environment, whether you’re working in pharmaceutical and food to pulp & paper, metals & minerals and chemical processing, in any type of container made from metal, plastic, fiberglass, concrete, or wood.

For severe flow problems the Deca Air-Slide Flow-Aid System is the ultimate material flow problem solver.

By strategically placing multiple  Deca Air-Slide units throughout your container, blasts of air keep the material flowing in a downward direction.

On a timed cycle, a powerful blast of air pushes open the one moving part, the piston, releasing the air in a 360 degree pattern along the inner surface of the container wall, lifting and moving the material off the wall. This piston, along with the housing and all other components, are made of high grade machined steel, ensuring reliable and trouble-free performance for years to come.

Advantages of Controlling the Air-Slides with a PLC:

  • Highly customizable
  • Total control of firing and dwell times
  • Ability to control firing order and cycles

Controlling the Air-Slides in this way provides the ability to precisely control the amount of material that is consistently delivered to the feed system at the discharge of the container thereby lending itself to precise batching.

Deca Air-Slide Flow Aid System Performance

The Deca Air-Slide Flow Aid System is successful because it creates and maintains material flow while also eliminating the following:

  • Costly down time for clearing out build-up or clogged bins, hoppers, silos, vessels, and bunkers
  • Sticky material build-up
  • Material adhesion to container wall
  • Bridging, arching, rat holes & clinging material

The Deca-Air-Slide Flow Aid System – 100% customer satisfaction, guaranteed!
