The proof is in the flow!

Airsweep eliminates bridging, ratholes and material 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 efficiency.

  • SPEED

    Reduce flushing/cleaning time between product runs

  • QUALITY

    Improve batch uniformity

  • NO DAMAGE TO EQUIPMENT

    Prevent vibration, stress or wear to container walls

The Best Material Flow Aid System

AirSweep® Vs. Vibrators Vs. Fluidizer



AirsweepLogox1.png

Vibrators

Fluidizers

Technique Uses pulses of pressurized air Uses vibration to shake material free Air flows into a disc, which flaps and vibrates
Activation Radius Effective radius of 4 feet No specific activation area Small activation radius
Material Control Can be used with dry, wet, or sticky materials Sticky material still builds up, even if bridging is controlled Not good with sticky or wet materials
Noise Emits quiet hiss with each pulse Extremely noisy Noisy – sounds like air horn when operating
Damage to Product or Vessel No container fatigue; can be used on thin-skinned bins Metal and weld fatigue from vibration or hammering of piston air knocker May cause vessel abrasion; disc material can degrade and contaminate product
Cost of Operation Intermittent pulsing – only a small amount of plant air Longer period of operation uses more air and power Longer period of operation uses more compressed air
Installation Installed from outside vessel, for easy cleaning and maintenance Installed from outside – channel iron required for reinforcement and transmission Installed inside the vessel

READ OUR CASE STUDIES

Control Concepts, Inc. provides a
7-year warranty on the Airsweep® unit.

  • AirSweep installation was easy, and the units have saved the company a lot of man hours. My experience totally exceeded my expectations – a 10 out of 10!

    Stanley RheaHead of Maintenance Department, Flax4Life

  • The AirSweep installation was pretty straightforward and I would absolutely recommend it. In fact, we are looking into expanding to use the system in other parts of our plant.

    John PappenheimMaintenance Manager, Bunge Milling

  • We are experiencing a 62.52% reduction in flour flush and 42.50% reduction in labor, all directly attributed to the AirSweeps…the flush material reduction alone is around $200K. Pretty awesome little devices!

    Operations Manager, Manufacturer of 15,000 food ingredients and flavor products to customers in more than 140 countries

  • As a distributor, we like that Control Concepts, Inc. takes risks and will try new things to make our customers happy. They want to ensure success, and the quality of the Airsweep for tough and sticky materials is superb. We have been very happy with our projects and look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.

    Rolando Cavazos, Sales Manager, BMH Equipos

  • Having sold thousands of Airsweep, to clients who sometimes buy 60 at a time, I can tell you this is the best piece of equipment out there to solve your material flow issues. We have repeat customers who just won’t buy anything else.
