Silo Air Flow Controller AFC – Reduction of pulsating material discharge

For all silos, which do not have an expansion chamber technology, it comes with high filling conditions to the problem that aeration air cannot escape by the material column. The consequence is a to high fluidization of the material and fluctuating pressure conditions at the outlet. This leads frequently to a pulsating material discharge.

The Claudius Peters Air Flow Controller - AFC represents for this the suitable system, in order to reduce the material fluctuations. In combination with a flow control gate with controlled function this system can be integrated optimally into existing plants. The Claudius Peters AFC consists of 3 main components:
