AirSweep is a powerful and versatile pneumatic flow aid that can be used for practically any kind of material, vessel and industry. It releases high pressure, high-volume, 360° bursts of compressed air that clears material blocks. In this material flow aid test, we demonstrate its effectivity on extruded kaolin.
Kaolin is a key component in the production of paper to plastics, cosmetics to crayons, adhesives to adsorbents. Here is how it is used by major industries:
• Paper. Coats the surface and make it whiter and smoother, or make colors brighter and sharper.
• Rubber compounds. Kaolin is added to both natural and synthetic rubber products to add strength, abrasion resistance, and rigidity. It also costs less than other rubber pigments.
• Ceramics. Kaolin helps make ceramic whitewares easier to mold, and adds dimensional stability, strength and smoothness. It is alsoused to make porcelain electrical insulators and refractory applications.
• Plastics. Kaolin is added to thermosetting and thermoplastic mixes to improve appearance and smoothness, and dimensional stability.

The AirSweep VA-06 is the smallest model, with an activation radius of 2 to 3 inches. Watch how even the smallest AirSweep effectively clears material blocks.
