Air cannon

Our G-Force air cannons feature

  • high temperature resistance
  • self lubrication
  • low maintenance
  • strong jet burst of compressed air
  • reliability and compatibility

to overcome all material caking, bridging and flow problems - even under the most adverse conditions.

The G-Force air cannon offers
  1. high-temperature resistance: the components inside the main valve body exclude any elastic sealing materials 
  2. self-lubrication: tailor-made self-lubricating bearings
  3. low maintenance: more than 300.000 firings with easy dismantling or replacement of parts
resulting in a long service life.

Available in three different air tank capacities to match every conceivable application

  • 75l air tank capacity mainly applicable to bins featuring a smaller capacity and cross-sectional area for storage of smaller-prportion and higher-liquidity materials
  • 100l air tank capacity mainly applicable to bins featuring small- and medium-sized capacity for storage of ordinary materials
  • 150l air tank capacity mainly applicable to bins featuring larger capacity and cross-sectional area for storage of larger-prportion and lower-liquidity and compacted materials

Tried. True. Tested. CE certified.

In order to enhance on-site usability and practicality of our G-Force air cannons even further, our universal valve assembly was designed with a double adapting flange and can therefore be easily coupled to any existing air tank brands.

Please view the detailed step-by-step explanation below for additional information on the functional routine of our G-Force air cannons

Step 1

After firing, the return spring moves the piston into the sealed position, closing the valve’s discharge opening. Air pressure behind the piston holds it closed.

Step 2

The air from the plant compressed air system enters through the holes in the piston, filling the tank to line pressure. For hazardous-duty applications, the tanks can be filled with nitrogen instead of compressed air.

Step 3

tl_files/upload/products/AirCon3.pngAs the tank reaches line pressure, the filling process stops. The tank maintains the air pressure, awaiting the discharge signal.

Step 4

tl_files/upload/products/AirCon4.pngUpon the discharge signal from the controller unit, the solenoid valve opens and releases the stored air through the quick exhaust valve. The power of the stored air in the tank forces back the piston, thus opening the discharge. The stored air erupts through the discharge opening into the vessel with a strong jet burst.
