4 Fast and Easy Ways to Find the Perfect Air Cannon for Your Silo

If you own a silo, you may understand how frustrating it can be to deal with material blockage. Generally, this happens when materials stick together inside the silo, causing a blockage and hindering their smooth flow. Some types of silos can be actively vibrated to prevent such occurrences. However, if you own a concrete silo, this won't be a practical solution because it's quite challenging to effectively vibrate concrete silos. And here's where air cannons come in. Read More 

How to Prevent Birds From Dying in Your Cattle Water Troughs

If you use large and deep water troughs to water your cattle, then you may have problems with birds that affect the quality of your livestock's drinking water. Your cows aren't the only creatures that will drink from your troughs; local birds may also see your troughs as an instant drinking supply, especially during hot summers. While you may not have a problem watering your local feathered friends along with your cows, you can run into problems if birds fall into deep troughs, can't get out and then die. Read More 

Two reasons why air conditioning systems are needed in industrial facilities

An air conditioning system is arguably one of the most important pieces of equipment in an industrial facility. Read on to find out why. It protects materials from heat-induced damage A huge number of industrial facilities make use of temperature-sensitive materials which can be destroyed by excess heat. The quality of pharmaceuticals, food and drink, for example, can all be negatively affected by high temperatures, as harmful bacteria and fungi tend to thrive in warm environments. Read More 

Engineering Plastics: Reasons to Use Plastic Bearings Over Metallic Bearings

Engineering plastics refer to plastic materials that have been enhanced to have a higher mechanical as well as thermal performance. This makes them much stronger than regular plastic that is used for commodities such as polyethene or PVC, which are used in the manufacture of plastic bottles, plastic containers and more. Since engineering plastics have enhanced performance, they tend to be more expensive than their conventional counterparts are. As such, they are produced in smaller quantities and are used for applications such as bearings and other mechanical parts. Read More 

Four Simple Tips for Choosing an Air Cannon for a Biomass Energy Plant

In a biomass energy plant, a series of air cannons facilitate the efficient flow of biomass materials such as wood chips and seed and agricultural byproducts. The system prevents the blockage or accumulation of these materials, which can significantly affect the efficiency of the plant. With air cannons, you can eliminate the buildup of ash in the tubes and walls of the biomass-fired boilers. Therefore, when choosing the right type of air cannon for your energy plant, you should consider the following factors. Read More
