The /PPI systems are an evolution of traditional compressed air cannon systems, simplifying their installation and management.

No longer individuals detached cannons,
but a firing points distribution network

The potentialities

The difference from the traditional systems consists of the type of installation: in /PPI SYSTEM (patented) the tanks are replaced by a pipes-tanks network from which the various points of use to which a fire valve is coupled are derived.

The right power to each fire point

The /PPI SYSTEM, when combined with Our partializing fire valves, allows the management of the blast wave in a controlled manner, using only the power peaks and therefore reducing the consumption of energy to the minimum. This solution reduces management costs and levels of environmental pollution.

The advantages

  • easy implementation;

  • ease of assembly and maintenance;

  • reduction of an area clutter: the use of the /PPI system is a winner in those situations where installation in confined spaces is required , (ideal for installation on ships board, etc.);

  • security and ease of management;

  • versatility: the system can be easily adapted to the layout of the existing structures and can be integrated and changed over time at minimal cost;

  • versatility of application;

  • low operating costs;

  • elimination of the need for human intervention;

  • continuity and regularity of production due to the elimination of stops caused by the lack of material;

  • elimination of delays due to the lack of influx from the material storage facilities;

  • elimination of dangers to safeguard the operators;

  • cleaning of areas to prevent scales, accumulations and compaction;

  • fluidization of siled materials to facilitate the sliding and to avoid the creation of dead zones: the constant renewal of the stored material in accordance with FIFO is guaranteed, preventing the product deterioration;

The fields of application

  • industry of

  • cement

  • lime

  • concretes

  • chemistry

  • crushing

  • wood and chipboard

  • inert treatment

  • quarries

  • steelworks

  • foundries

  • thermal-electric power plants

  • filtration systems

  • feed mills

  • flour mills

  • agri-food companies

  • paper mills

  • glassworks

  • coking plants

  • pharmaceutical industry

  • storage centres near port areas, saltworks and other

  • maritime transport


  • Cleaning and emptying of storage facilities (silos, hoppers, bins, bunkers, etc.)

  • Fluidization of stored materials

  • Extraction and storage of loose materials

  • Cooking cycles of raw materials

  • Industrial recycling

  • in the production cycles of cement for removal and prevention of the formation of scales inside ducts where high temperatures gas are present

  • in lime kilns to facilitate the sliding of material in areas where it tends to slow down and/or stop

  • cleaning of machine parts that have abnormal deposits of material

  • cleaning of walls where the deposit of hot or cold dust can be problems

  • against the consolidation of the material within large silos that, over time, are likely to reduce the storage capacity

  • with the cleaning effects of storage facilities

  • etc.

Careful management of stored material also ensures a high level of efficiency for the plant:

  • In the agri-food sector it allows for the cleaning of silos permitting the transit of diverse seeds within the same structure without contamination of the same

  • Avoids the risk of compaction and formation of dead zones that prevent the renewal of material (in some areas it is important to maintain a FIFO process in order to avoid the risk of deterioration of the product) and which reduce the storage potentialities of the structures themselves

  • It prevents the formation of bridges and chimneys inside the storage structures that hinder the extraction of material: in the worst cases the outflow from the storage facilities is completely stopped leading to damage and delays in production with possible significant economic impact

  • In the naval field it helps facilitate the unloading of cargo holds by reducing, if not eliminating, the need for direct intervention by staff which ensures safety and greatly reduces the time commitment of earth moving machines.
