Have you encountered material blockages?

Industrial air cannon or air blaster is designed to address the issue of material arching and blockages in storage silos. Material blockages are a common problem in industries such as coal, power, and cement. To improve the flowability of materials in the silo and solve the issue of blockages, it is necessary to install advanced and ideal arch-breaking and flow-aiding equipment.

Air cannon for cement plant

During the cement production process, a significant amount of raw materials such as coal powder and limestone are required. These raw materials need to be transported to the production line for processing through conveyors or pipelines. However, during the conveying process, blockages can easily occur due to the varying particle sizes and densities of the raw materials. This can lead to production line shutdowns and impact production efficiency.

working principle of air cannon

The principle of an industrial air cannon is very simple. It consists of a compressed air tank and a nozzle. When there is a blockage in the raw materials, there are two methods to remove the blockage.

  1. Manual Operation: the operator will aim the nozzle at the blockage and open the valve of the compressed air tank, allowing the compressed air to be ejected onto the blockage. Due to the high speed of the compressed air, the ejected air generates a shock wave that vibrates and clears the blockage.
  2. Electric Operation: the air cannon utilizes a differential pressure device and an electrically controlled pneumatic battery changeover valve. First, compressed air is pumped into the air cannon tank and the working pressure is reached. Then, the pneumatic electromagnetic changeover valve is closed. This allows for the instantaneous release of the compressed air from the air cannon tank, generating a powerful impact force. This force is capable of clearing blockages and breaking up arches.
