hopper feeding system / cannon / for aquaculture / vibration
The Air Blitz feed cannon works within a similar feeding distance to our well-proven Blitz water cannons
The hopper has a capacity of 50kg (or optional 75kg). A unique eductor design pulls feed down from the hopper into the air blast and shoots the pellets through a flexible hose to all points of the pen surface within range. Feed flow is controlled by a simple slide gate valve accessible through a port in the side of the feeder body. In still air conditions, the feeding distance will be around twelve to fifteen metres, depending on the size of pellet being fed. The Air Blitz is particularly well suited to feeding Mediterranean species, such as sea bass and bream.
The feeder is built around a one-piece aluminium body with a built-in hopper. The engine is positioned behind the hopper on a low vibration cushion mounted base assembly. The blower is mounted below it, ensuring constant tension of the drive belts and easy adjustment. A choice of engines is available, either diesel or gasoline fuelled.
