Air cannon

Sumika : Plastics Manufacturer


The customer wanted to simplify and secure its silo cleaning system. During product changeover in the silo containing polymer granules, an operator climbs to the upper end of the silo using a crinoline ladder, in order to perform a blowing operation on the dust accumulations that have occurred inside the silo. This is a dangerous and dirty operation. The plant manager decided to eliminate this step by installing an automatic silo cleaning system.

Securing your silo cleaning system


3 AIRCHOC ACC0.5SP air cannons (9-litre tanks) installed with silo blowpipe and control panel.


The customer is very satisfied with the efficiency of the AIRCHOC system. The silo no longer needs to be cleaned, so no maintenance is required.
