Flo-Pad Handles Tough Aeration Applications

ELBURN, IL - Monitor's Flo-Pad bin aeration device fluidizes materials in bins, hoppers and silos. The virtually maintenance free Flo-Pad uses multiple Evassers mounted on a single air plenum chamber inside the vessel for a multi-directional air release.

Monitor's Flo-Pad has many advantages over other bin aerators. The Flo-Pad fluidizes materials without the noise and damaging vibration caused by pneumatic or electric vibrators. Additionally, unlike other types of aerators that use cotton or canvas to diffuse the air, the Flo-Pad uses multiple Evassers, which are less likely to be bound or clogged due to moisture. The Evassers also have a standard neoprene boot that prevents material backflow by expanding to let the pressurized air out and contracting when the air is shut off.

The most effective aeration of dry bulk materials is typically achieved by the use of multiple rows of Flo-Pads, one row located in each quadrant of the slopping bin bottom. The spacing between rows and individual Flo-Pads can vary from application to application. Units are available for high pressure and high temperature applications.
