Aero Bin Bottoms

The Vortex® Aero Bin™ Bottom is attached to the bottom of flat- or conical-shaped silos and hoppers; in particular, storage silos with especially large diameter. It contains two main design features.

Ideal application: As materials begin to discharge through the silo output, a fan or blower injects low pressure, dry air (typically 6 psig | 41 kPa) upward into the silo via the aeration bed. As pneumatic pressures permeate the silo, the materials handled become fluidized. This encourages a consistent, continuous discharge of materials, in order to prevent bridging, rat holing and other discharge inefficiencies.

Key Features

  • Porous media is supported by a durable steel grate

  • Cleanout ports to inspect for product in the lower air chamber and maintain, if necessary. Each section of the conveyor has a cleanout port, located along the bottom of the lower air chamber

  • Rain ledge prevents precipitation from leaking into the conveyor

  • Inlet ports with ball valves to adjust the amount of air being injected into the air-gravity conveying system. Each section of the conveyor has inlet ports, located along the side of the lower air chamber

  • Several options for porous media material of construction, based on application and material characteristics

  • Viewports for in-line inspection. Each section of the conveyor has a viewport, located along the top of the upper chamber

  • Can have infinite length, depending on available head space

  • Simple installation and low maintenance requirements

  • No moving parts –for operator safety, reduced wear and prolonged service life

  • Low energy consumption using a single power source (electricity to power the fan or blower, no plant air required)
