Air cannon - To prevent chimney and bridging

The airgun delivers high-pressure gas jets rising until 6 bar on a short duration to lead to a collapse of bridges and chimneys. Its use is ideal to get the bulk solids with irregular forms to move.

  • Efficiency
  • Air consumption
  • Noise level


"Chimney" formation is a phenomenon that frequently occurs in silos; this is due to the physical and stored material’s chemical properties. When unloading and the sluice gate is opened, the central column is released while the rest of the material remains against the wall.

The airgun PG is often the ideal solution for light materials. The air jet created by the air instantaneously releases a large quantity of compressed air, which causes chimneys and domes to collapse.
