100% Guaranteed Flow Solutions

For severe flow problems the Deca AIR-SLIDE Flow-Aid Solution is the ultimate material flow problem solver. Engineered to create and maintain material flow while also eliminating sticky & tacky build-up, arching, rat holes, and blockages.
On a timed cycle a powerful blast of air pushes open the one moving part, the piston, releasing the air in a 360 degree pattern along the inner surface of the container wall, lifting and moving the material off the wall. This piston, along with the housing and all other components are made of high grade machined steel, ensuring a reliable and trouble-free performance for years with minimal attention.
By strategically placing multiple Deca AIR-SLIDE units throughout your container, these blasts of air keep the material flowing in a downward direction.

The Deca AIR-SLIDE can be used to promote material flow of dry, moist, dense or entangled materials in any manufacturing or production environment (from pharmaceutical and food to pulp & paper, metals & minerals and chemical processing) in any type of container made from metal, plastic, fiberglass, concrete, or wood.

Applications

N/A On a timed cycle a powerful blast of air pushes open the one moving part, the piston, releasing the air 360° around lifting and moving material off the inside wall of the container. This piston, along with the housing and all other components are made of high grade machined steel, ensuring a reliable and trouble-free performance for years with minimal attention.
