The Audiosonic Acoustic Cleaner range designed and manufactured
by Primasonics International is an innovative, non-intrusive,
affordable technology in preventing material blockages within
silos and hoppers and maintaining material flow.
steel range of Acoustic Cleaners have been successfully employed
within silos and hoppers in a wide range of industries, thus
eliminating the need for either hazardous manual entry or
employment of other damaging, non-effective external methods.
silos, typically there are two main material blockage problems.
"Ratholing" is where material continually builds up on
the walls resulting in a much restricted material flow down the
centre of the silo.
An Acoustic Cleaner mounted on top of the
silo will prevent this material build up and ensure smooth main
flow of material.
"Bridging" occurs with material when
a void forms at the silo discharge point with material bridging
The shear weight of material above further compacts this
"bridge" and material flow ceases or is at best very
A small Audiosonic Acoustic cleaner located at the
silo discharge will prevent bridging and ensure continual maximum
The Acoustic Cleaners are operated by compressed
