Standard AirSweep vs. Straight Shooter Models

The AirSweep® system can handle almost any type of material and can be fitted into several kinds of storage vessels: silos, hoppers, ribbon blenders and more. The nozzles are positioned to release high-pressure, high volume 360° bursts of air. However, your process may require the air to be focused in one direction. Or, there may be structural limitations like a shared wall in the grain bin that make it difficult to install the standard AirSweep®.

That’s when you need the AirSweep® straight shooter models. In this video, Paul the AirSweep® guy explains:

  • The difference between the standard AirSweep® and the Straight Shooter models
  • Situations or applications where the Straight Shooter may work better
  • How to adjust the position/location and angle of the Straight Shooter to achieve the desired material flow

The video concludes with a material flow test that shows how the AirSweep® Straight Shooter can eliminate ratholing, bridging and other material blocks.

What will work better for your vessel, material, process or industry? The AirSweep® engineers can customize the system for you, and recommend the right models and set-up.
