VibraPad Aeration Systems, available in assorted standard sized kits, from 2- pad kits up to 24- pad kits with installation hardware, increase the flow of dry bulk materials for reliable and efficient product transfer from hoppers, bins, and silos.

VibraPad-2This product combines variable aeration and vibration to counter bridging, rat-holing, and compacting that can occur during processing and storage.

Kits include parts needed for a complete system: controls, piping, plumbing, fittings, hoses, wiring, and valves. Cyclonaire can also custom fit a VibraPad Aeration System to fit your exact application.

 

  • About VibraPad™ Aeration Systems
    • Metered air aerates and fluidizes material and produces resonating vibratory waves that further aid material flow.
    • Use during transfer to improve flow and during storage to maintain the aerated condition of the material.
    • Detailed instructions and complete kits make installation easy.
    • Rubber pads are shaped to provide excellent sealing against a wide variety of surfaces.
    • Integral check valve displaces air evenly under the boot and eliminates backflow.
    • Operation is unaffected by moisture in material or air supply lines.
