USDA-Accepted Performance (per unit)*
Model Material Activation Dia. Approx. Air Consumption*
USDA-135 4 feet (1.22 m) 0.75 scf @ 80 psi
USDA-185 6 feet (1.83 m) 2.2 scf @ 90 psi
*Average in 75 lb/ft3 material; 250 milliseconds air pulse.

Benefits of an AirSweep® System:

  • Patented valve design utilizes only one moving part, ensuring an immediate reseal after each pulse to prevent clogging and material build-up.
  • Each pulse activates material up to an 8 foot radius for a first-in, first-out controlled flow, facilitating use of full bin capacity.
  • Reduces flushing/cleaning time between product runs and improves batch uniformity.
  • System is mounted on the outside of the vessel for easy cleaning and maintenance.
  • Energy efficient – uses plant air.
  • No damage, vibration, stress or wear to container walls. Mount to metal, concrete, fiberglass or wood vessels.
  • Manufactured from high grade steel for long service life.

Total AirSweep® System

A total AirSweep® material activation system consists of strategically-located AirSweeps, high-flow solenoid valves, electronic sequence controller and an air receiver.

The average AirSweep® System uses less than 10 cfm of compressed air or gas making it energy and cost efficient.

No damage, vibration, stress or wear to container walls.
