Airsweep / Control Concepts
AirSweep is a Control Concepts material activation system that eliminates bridging, ratholes, and material handling build-up. Each nozzle emits a high-pressure, high-volume, 360-degree burst of compressed air to lift and sweep stalled material back into the flow stream – clearing the way for higher factory and material handling efficiency.
Customers reduce their flushing and cleaning time between product runs, improve product quality due to bath uniformity, and prevent vibration and stress damage to their equipment. Airsweep (formelry known as Myrlen Airsweep) is a powerful, versatile material flow system for various industries, including food and agriculture, construction and mining, and chemicals.
The Airsweep material activation system uses pressurized air pulses and can be installed outside a vessel for each cleaning and maintenance. It is effective in a radius of 4 feet and can be used with dry, wet, or sticky materials. It emits a quiet hiss with each pulse which; means there is no container fatigue, and it can be used on thin-skinned bins. The cost of operation for the Airsweep is low as it uses only a small amount of plan air for intermittent pulsing.
