Aerator pads are the ideal solution for discharging bulk solids

Aerators (also known as Airbrator Pads, Mushroom Pads, Fluidisers and Vibrator Pads) are for Silos, Hoppers, Chutes, Road Tankers, Bins and many more applications. An aerator pad vibrates when air is applied, encouraging the build up of any media debris to become free so as to not clog up the vessel. Aerators are available in both general purpose and food quality rubbers.


The best way to fit aerator pads is from the inside of a hopper, silo or bin. They can be fitted from the outside but from the inside is prefered because only a small hole needs to be drilled.

It is recommended to install aerator pads in atleast 2-3 rows inside a hopper, silo or bin. On each row they should be spaced around 30-50mm apart.

An airline will need to be fitted to each aerator. If they are being pulsed at the same time then the same air line can be connected to the aerators, branched off. Some users pulse different rows or sections, so the air line connections are user preference.
