Solimar is a leading supplier of disk-type fluidizers for the discharge of powder and bulk solids. This complete line offers long-wearing aeration devices for many applications including silos, hoppers, bins and trailers. The fluidizers are particularly effective at preventing rat-holing and bridging by utilizing air pressure to move the material while gently vibrating the vessel wall. The company’s products are divided into two distinct application areas. Silo products include the company’s popular line of disk aerators that enhance the flow of powders in various storage devices and transportation products including disk aerators designed for dry bulk trailer usage.
Product advantages include: superior sealing properties; optimized air volume to better unload silos or trailers; an original durable design, in two diameters (4” and 2”), that will not crack, wear prematurely or clog like fabric pads; F.D.A. approved materials with operating temperatures up to 450˚ F (230˚); and a metallic detectable version for food applications.
These disk type aerators replace other pad-type aeration devices resulting in drastically reduced maintenance requirements. The Solimar aerators can be retrofitted into existing storage devices using the company’s EZ-In kits.
Other related Solimar products include; control systems for multiple aerators; check valves; manhole covers, hopper cones, swing-away bottoms and filter assemblies for bulk trailers; and easy-out access doors.
