Configuration for Pneumatic Knocker Type K

The Configuration Tool below provides a rough reference for selecting the adequate size and number of Pneumatic Knockers for round silos of 60° cone. In case of rectangular containers, a minimum of two knockers are mounted on the flatter sides.
The components shown in Fig. 3 are required for the mounting and operation of the Pneumatic Knocker.

  • Attaching the Pneumatic Knocker Welding plate AP. With small pipes, small containers or containers with insulation welded plate in T-shaped APT
  • Pneumatic 3/2 way solenoid valve in the desired control voltage.
  • Electrical control for solenoid valve to desired control voltage.
    An existing PLC control can also be used.
  • Pneumatic connectors and cables
  • Maintenance unit for pressure reduction to 3.5 bar operating pressure, drainage and lubrication of the knocker is recommended.

Important parameters for the selection of the right knocker:

  • Thickness of the container
  • Container material
  • Container diameter
  • Operating temperature
  • If present, insulation thickness for the selection of the mounting
  • Choice of version in aluminium, steel or stainless steel
  • Protection type for operating environment

For the electrical components:

  • Desired operating voltage
  • Number of knockers
  • Protection type for operating environment

For help in selecting the knocker, please send us the completed questionnaire. Any drawings, sketches or photos of existing plants are also helpful.
