The BIG BLASTER® XHV Air Cannon with MARTIN® TORNADO Exhaust Valve produces material flow with greater force, faster cycling, and improved safety.

The BIG BLASTER® XHV Air Cannon fires when the MARTIN® TORNADO Exhaust Valve opens in response to a positive surge of air sent by a tripped solenoid valve. This positive-acting valve amplifies the discharge force up to 20% more than a standard BIG BLASTER® XHV Air Cannon of the same size.

Tanks for BIG BLASTER® Air Cannons, supplied by Martin Engineering, are manufactured to ASME Code Rules, Section VIII, Division 7. Tanks are National Board registered and pressure vessel quality (PVQ).

The MARTIN® TORNADO Exhaust Valve works with a positive air pressure pulse which improves plant safety by eliminating inadvertent firings due to pressure drops.

The control solenoids can be mounted up to 200 feet (61 m) from the air cannon - allowing for increased flexibility in the system layout.
