The Evasser bin aerator from Monitor Technologies is a device used to promote the flow of dry bulk powders from a storage vessel without the noise and damaging vibration caused by pneumatic or electric vibrators. "The Evasser aerator is small, compact and capable of aerating many types of bulk powders and granular solids in bins, hoppers and silos."
The Evasser can discharge air up to 80 psi (5.5 bar) to move settled materials. Once material is flowing the Evasser can be used to maintain flowability of material with a constant 2 to 5 psi (0.14 to 0.35 bar) supply of air.
"Unlike other types of aerators that use cotton or canvas to diffuse the air, the Evasser is less likely to be bound or clogged due to moisture and can be more effective as it directs air flow to 'sweep' the bin wall. In addition, the Evasser is not as prone to back-flow of material as the standard neoprene boot expands to let the pressurized air out and contracts when the air is shut off blocking the air outlets from material backflow."
The Evasser bin aerator is available with an external mounting plate. This means that installation of the device can be done from outside of the bin making it ideal for use in replacing worn and plugged air pads. In addition, with no moving parts or filters to clean or replace the Evasser requires virtually no maintenance.
