Unlock the Potential of Air Cannons

Air Cannons, also known as air blasters, are powerful devices engineered to tackle dust issues at their source. These innovative tools efficiently dislodge material build-up in chutes, silos, and transfer points, preventing the release of airborne dust. Strategically placed and properly designed Air Cannons are essential components of your dust suppression strategy. Key considerations include chute design, impact support, sealing systems, and belt tracking. Discover how Air Cannons can revolutionize your dust control efforts.

The Flash Cannon

The Flash Air Cannons are blast aerators consisting of a compressed air reservoir with a quick opening valve that releases the stored air in a sudden, high-energy blast. This blast is directed through a discharge pipe to aerate and dislodge material and restore flow.

In a direct blast Air Blaster the air in the reservoir or tank passes directly into the discharge pipe without bends or obstructions in the air course that impede the flow of air. This is important because the quicker the air discharges, the greater the velocity and force of the blast and, therefore, the greater the amount of material affected.

When used in combination, multiple Air Blasters can restore flow to hundreds, thousands, or millions of cubic feet of material. Air Blasters are activated manually or by a micro-controller based sequencing timer that controls the firing time interval and sequence of one or more Air Blasters.
