FD Series 500 - Bin aerator


Series FD Fluidizing Disks

Vibrating Bin Aerator types FD combine product aeration under operating pressure reaching 6 bar (87 PSI) with an additional slight vibration on the silo wall (see data sheet for sizing, positioning and number of aerators). Due to its design damage of the silo is impossible even with abrasive materials. An additional backstop valve is not required as, due to the work pressure of 2 to 6 bar (29-87 PSI), no material can enter the zone beneath the elastic FDA-approved silicon lip. Deca Vibrating Bin Aerators are used for the improvement of mass flow with powders and granular materials. Due to FDA-conformity of the membrane material the Aerators are suitable for food-grade applications. To meet the most demanding user requirements a stainless steel shaft version is available.
