For best results in promoting the flow of dry bulk powders, multiple rows of air pad bin aerators should be used. The number of rows and quantity of air pads in each row will differ by application. Monitor application engineers are ready to provide you with the best recommendation for your specific material flow problem.
Generally, four rows of air pad bin aerators on 12 inch (305mm) or 15 inch (381 mm) centers is recommended. While the effective radius of each air pad is approximately 10 inches (254 mm), the air pads should be spaced so that the entire troublesome area is within the sphere of influence of the air pads. The following table should be used to determine the recommended air pads per row.
