The BIG BLASTER® XHV Air Cannons supply a quiet, but powerful, discharge of plant-compressed air to dislodge material build up and enhance the flow of bulk solids. BIG BLASTER® XHV Air Cannons provide effective performance on high-temperature applications as well as on the most challenging materials. BIG BLASTER® XHV Air Cannons have low-maintenance requirements and high-velocity discharge.

These air cannons are designed for severe-duty applications where exposure to elevated service temperatures and harsh gases can affect performance. They have proven successful in applications outside cement kiln pre-heaters, where interior temperatures reach up to 2500ºF (1371ºC). Model numbers are composed of the prefix "BB" followed by three numbers, representing critical dimensions (in inches) of the unit. The first number is the diameter of the discharge, the second number is tank diameter, and the third number specifies the tank length.
