F57-L Buildup and Blockage

Build-Up & Blockage Clearing Systems Bin-Silos


Cardox is widely recognized as the most efficient way and reliable means of clearing build ups and blockages…… whether grain, flour, maize, soya, salt, sugar, cement, gypsum, coal, fertilizer, catalyst, ores, powders etc. The powerful Cardox System provides the ultimate solution to clear even the most difficult of build ups.


Each and every time you use a Cardox Tube you instantly release a cold heaving mas of CO2 that expands 600 times its original volume!….. At pressures which can be regulated from 1,200 bar (18,000 psi) to 3,000 bar (40,000 psi).

Application of the Cardox system can achieved by implementing Cardox Tubes by dropping them from above access port on the top of silo’s or by applying a wide range of Cardox Socket configurations on the side of silo’s, at the base or adapting to existing flanged entry points. Also can be used in dry storage bunkers, coal bunkers, and open storage piles where storage piles have become hardened.
Cardox consists of a high strength reusable steel tube filled with liquid carbon dioxide, a chemical heater and a rupture disc.

When energized by the application of a small electrical charge, the chemical heater instantly converts the liquid carbon dioxide to a gas. This conversion expands the CO2 volume and builds up pressure inside the tube until it causes the rupture disc at the end of the tube to burst. This releases the CO2 – now 600 times the original volume – through a special discharge nozzle to create a powerful heaving force, at pressures up to 40,000psi (3,000bar). This all takes place in milliseconds. Carbon dioxide gas is an inert gas that is commonly used in fire extinguishers, so it is safe to use without fear of generating secondary reaction with gases in the vessel/silo. In addition the quick release of the gas refrigerates the discharge, bringing it to a temperature low enough to avoid ignition of any air-gas mixtures inside the blocked vessel.

Consult with a Deca Vibrator Industries Inc applications specialist to develop the most cost effective, safe and logistically correct collaborative approach to removing build and blockages that are diminishing your storage capacity or production capabilities.
