In response to requests from food manufacturers who are looking for the highest purity for their product, Solimar Pneumatics has developed a metal detectable fluidizer disk. Instances of Solimar fluidizer disks contaminating product are extremely rare, but disks that have been mechanically damaged during bin cleaning, by extreme air pressures or improper installation could potentially cause a problem. Solimar’s fluidizer disk mounts on the storage vessel wall and utilizes air pressure to unload powder and bulk solids faster and completely without bridging and rat holing. The proven system is used for silos, hoppers and dry bulk trailers. Solimar’s silicone aerators have the highest manufacturing quality control and an excellent record of structural integrity. This new disk provides another level of protection and safety.
The new gray metal detectable disks in two sizes, 2-inch Mini and 4-inch diameter Standard, join the standard blue and white silicone versions, orange high temperature silicone, black and white EPDM and tan neoprene. The superior aeration of the Solimar disk fluidizer utilizes directional air flow along the wall of the chamber to loosen product and move it to the discharge point. Gentle vibration is provided at the outer edges of the disk which helps to keep powders and bulk solids flowing. Because the disk seals tightly against the chamber wall, there is minimum back pressure. This design advantage also prevents airline plugging. Standard 4-inch diameter and Mini two-inch diameter for use in bins, hoppers and silos or in pneumatic lines with tight curvature. Solimar aerators are compatible with food grade materials and are FDA approved. The silicone material will not tear or absorb moisture. The disk aerators will withstand temperatures to 350-degrees Fahrenheit (170° C).
Solimar Fluidizers provide the versatility to work with numerous stems and fittings. Models are available to work with high pressure/low volume compressed air or low pressure/high volume blower air. Engineering assistance is available to select the correct number and placement of aerators. Customer can fax or e-mail a sketch of their hopper and Solimar will return a recommendation within 24-hours. Insist on the Original Disk Fluidizer with our exclusive Radial Ridge Design.
