VibraPad Aerators from Cyclonaire are designed to increase the rate and consistency of flow for dry bulk materials. The devices eliminate the bridging, rat-holing and compacting of dry bulk solids that can cause plugging, slow or erratic conveying and processing downtime. They combine fluidizing air with mechanical vibration to set dry bulk materials in motion and keep them moving. Pressurized air enters the stainless steel shaft and flows into the cavities formed where the umbrella-shaped rubber pad is pressed against the bin or hopper wall. The air then escapes under the pad boot, causing the boot to vibrate against the wall. The pressurized air creates an aeration effect to fluidize the surrounding material.  The vibratory action of the boot transfers mechanical energy to get the material to flow.
