IGS air cannons have been designed to reduce costly downtime, labor-intensive cleaning processes, and inefficient maintenance routines. Whether you require a new installation or a retrofit, we have a solution to transform the way you maintain your equipment.
Air cannons emit controlled bursts of compressed air to prevent and remove blockages and build-up issues in a range of process vessels without causing damage.
IGS Air Cannons have a simple goal: to remove blockages and build-ups more effectively.
There are various sizes of air tanks available to fit specific installation requirements:
More air cannon volume equals more material movement.
• Double the size of standard air cannon firing assemblies resulting in 7 times more power.
• Extra power allows the cannon to be installed at a greater distance from the nozzles making any maintenance much easier and safer for the worker, and protecting the cannon from the detrimental effects of the process.
• Adjustable force air cannon. The cannon can be operated at lower air pressures and maintain the same cleaning force, and then be increased if extreme buildup requires more power.
• Increased power and volume offers the ability to fire through multiple nozzles at the same time, so one air cannon can replace multiple cannons.
The design maximizes energy and yields the greatest cleaning force in the industry today, blasting away the build-up and blockage.
Why install cannons where your maintenance team can’t perform their job or in hot environments, leading to poor reliability? Protect your maintenance crew and your equipment. IGS is the industry leader in designing systems that eliminate these issues. Remote mounting equals greater reliability.
Simple piston assembly offers a more robust design with less moving parts that resist corrosion and wear better than traditional systems, resulting in greater reliability and reduction in maintenance costs. Eliminate the springs which cause frequent failure. Use standard off-the-shelf replacement parts instead of being limited to replacement parts from the OEM. Lower the costs with IGS off-the-shelf replacement parts.
IGS offers a wide range of air cannon nozzle designs engineered for their specific application. Nozzles that improve the cleaning force to nozzles designed to reduce the number of air cannons required to perform the cleaning job.
Adjustable force delivers the cleaning force that maximizes cleaning results. The combination and control of peak force, the air volume, and discharge time results in far better cleaning.
