Monitor Air Pad

Air Pads

Monitor’s Air Pad bin-aerator is a low-cost, rugged option for getting material to flow through your hopper.  The Air Pad has an effective radius of 10” and is part of a row of Air Pads spaced on 12” centers, in most applications.  An external mounting kit makes installation easy and efficient.


  • Promotes Material Flow
  • Rugged Construction
  • Economical
  • Easy Installation

Evassers, Flo-Pad

The Evasser is a bin-aeration unit that will replace the noisy and damaging vibrators commonly used.  Other units that use air to create material flow often have problems with clogging and material back-flow.  The Evasser uses a neoprene boot that expands to release pressurized air, which has an effective radius of 12”, and contracts when the air supply is stopped, creating a seal to block the material from clogging the air outlet.  The Flo-Pad is a row of Evassers, placed in multiple locations in the hopper, to create the most flow of material.

Air Cannons

Air Cannon 02
Air Cannons

An Air Cannon consists of a high pressure tank storing compressed air (80 to 125 PSI) and a quick release piston valve that, on command, instantly releases compressed air into the bin or silo to fluidize material. An Air Cannon can be used to solve a variety of bin material flow problems:



Material sticks at the end or above the sloping section of the bin

Material hangs in the lower sloping section of the bin


Sticking to Sides of Bin

Material clings to sides of bin and creates a void or dead storage

Material clings to the sides of the bin instead of flowing through the opening
