What type of flow promotion should I use in my silo?

The choice of flow promotion equipment depends on the exact properties of the material being handled. In general we would recommend using aeration for products that are “powdered” and vibration for products that are pebbled or granular. If the product is a mix of powder and pebble/granules, a combination of aeration and vibration can also be used.

It is also important to understand that flow promotion equipment may need to be cycled on & off during the feeding period to achieve consistent feed rates - the timing of the on / off periods will depend on your material.
