Aeration Fluidisers for Silos, Bins & Hoppers

Air fluidisers are small and simple cone shaped components that solve bulk dry powder and granular material flow problems, acting as a flow aid. Bridging, caking, compacting and rat-holing are common reoccurring problems in large vessels including silos, hoppers and bins. A simple solution for solving this issue is to install air fluidisers around the vessel, which give off a gentle vibration using low volume directional airflow and aeration.

AKO Pinch Valves used in Robotic 3D Concrete Printing Application

AKO UK are supplying their VMP plastic Pinch Valve in DN25 (product code VMP025-03XK-72) into a concrete slurry application, which is used as a fail safe option. The concrete slurry with very fine aggregates in size 0.3-1mm is used for robotic concrete printing.

The world’s first commercial 3D concrete printing robot is currently in design production, with the aim to be used on site to produce a variety of elements including cladding panels.

The Importance of Abrasion Resistant Valves

More and more engineers and plant workers are opting for the Pinch Valve when fitting or replacing abrasion resistant valves. The Pinch Valve is a highly robust type of valve that is extremely reliable, with a very good elasticity. One of the main positive factors of this type of abrasion resistant valve is that it has lightening fast opening/closing times, ensuring a quick shutoff.
