Highly efficient from a distance: the Distance-Knocker QJ from singold

When it is not possible to attach a pneumatic knocker directly to a silo, the pneumatic distance knocker from singold gerätetechnik gmbh offers a solution.
It is not always possible to attach a pneumatic knocker directly to a silo, for instance, if the container becomes hot or if it moves. In such cases, the pneumatic distance knocker from singold gerätetechnik gmbh offers a solution. Company founder Erwin Lüer developed it using state-of-the-art engineering.

How the Distance-Knocker QJ works

The basic concept is the same as that of the traditional pneumatic knocker: spontaneously released compressed air pressure accelerates the impact piston, which is designed as a permanent magnet, after it is released. In contrast to the conventional knocker, the distance knocker’s piston rod strikes a moving impulse part, which is strongly accelerated according to the impulse-momentum theorem and ultimately transfers the energy to the container to be knocked off. This process takes place at such a high speed that the human eye can hardly perceive it. Thanks to the additional impulse part, the Distance-Knocker QJ can be mounted at a distance from the silo; this means an enormous extension of the application possibilities.

A wide range of possible applications


The distance knocker is always the method of choice when a successful cleaning can be achieved with a hammer blow but a classic knocker cannot be mounted directly on the container due to the temperature or movement of the object to be knocked off. This applies, for example, to filling and emptying stations with changing containers, rotating drums and silos with hot walls.

Use at high temperatures

Because of the spacing, the distance knocker can be used, for example, in rotary kiln drying systems with surface temperatures of up to 300 °C and more. The QJ is also suitable for automatically knocking off filter cups or filter baskets of different sizes.. A design with a thread at the end of the piston rod even makes it possible for the impact body and thus the impact geometry to be adapted case-specifically to any conceivable application situation. For example, Vulkollan buffers at the end of the piston rod are available as accessories. This makes the distance knocker a valuable tool in many different industries and types of plants: from agriculture to powder metallurgy and steel production to the textile, pharmaceutical and food industries.

Suitable for the application

The optimal version for a company’s individual requirements depends on many parameters, such as the thickness of the sheet metal, the material and diameter of the container or the drum, as well as the operating temperature. The singold gerätetechnik gmbh service team advises on the selection of the ideally suited knocker and is happy to work out completely new application possibilities with creative application engineers.

Straightforward, functional and effective


The QJ knocks effectively – and only when needed

Compared to conventional ball housings, for example, the Distance-Knocker QJ produces about twenty times the impact energy. Another advantage of the distance knocker: while ball housings cannot be switched off when the drum is rotating, the QJ knocks on demand - i.e. only when it is needed for the process. This also benefits sound insulation and thus employee health.

The QJ can bridge these distances

The distance knocker is available in different sizes. The bridged distance to the element to be knocked off varies between 25 mm and 35 mm. In addition, the piston rod is available in an extended version that can increase the distance of the knocker to the container by another 200 mm. In the case of very hot walls in particular, it is necessary to set the distance between the knocker and the container as high as possible. The temperature of a knocker should not exceed 140 °C because otherwise the seals and other parts would wear out too quickly.
available sizes of distance-knocker: QJ 63, QJ 80, QJ100 and QJ125

Simple construction – simple maintenance

As sophisticated as the invention of company founder Erwin Lüer is, it is nevertheless simple in design. For practical use, this means that the Distance-Knocker QJ is a low-maintenance tool in operation. Should a component ever need to be replaced, the knocker is simply disassembled and quickly reassembled.

Noise protection for pneumatic knockers
an important contribution to the health of employees Noise in the workplace not only has serious health consequences, such as damage to the inner ear, headaches, dizziness and even concentration and sleep disorders, but it also affects productivity. In order to keep operational noise levels as low as possible, singold gerätetechnik offers a range of solutions, all of which have been carefully thought out down to the last detail. The pneumatic knocker from singold only knocks when required – this in itself is a contribution to noise protection. But by adding specialised accessories and using a special construction of the pneumatic knocker, sound emissions can be reduced even further. Sound insulation hood The sound insulation hood is put over the pneumatic knocker and, if present, the solenoid control valve, and screwed to the knocker. It is equipped with a rubber bushing for the compressed air hose and a silencer for the rinsing air. Towards the silo wall, a rubber edge protector reduces the sound. It adapts

Thor’s hammer among pneumatic knockers
The greatest advantages of pneumatic knockers: particularly powerful, efficient and comparatively light Impact frequency knockers, interval knockers, shakers and vibrators: they are all used to make bulk materials flow better. Knocking on demand - this is best done with a pneumatic knocker. And no other knocker can produce such a high impact effect with the same size as the pneumatic singold knocker. What are the greatest advantages of pneumatic knockers? Have you ever walked through your plant and seen impact marks on cyclones, bins or silos? In all those cases where the flow of material was restarted with a hammer blow, a pneumatic knocker could have been used more efficiently and with less impact on the material. Unlike shakers, vibrators and even interval knockers, a pneumatic magnetic system knocker can knock on demand - whenever it is needed. This provides the following advantages: * For some products, constant knocking tends to condense the material flow rather than promote it. A single, targeted blow is much more effective here than a vibrator. * Well-directed

The wide range of singold knocker variants
singold has the ideal pneumatic knocker for every system: high temperatures, special hygiene requirements, very large silos, etc. Even Distance-Knockers when direct mounting is not possible. Just as the application scenarios for pneumatic knockers are diverse, so too are the requirements. Whether high temperatures, special hygiene requirements or very large silos, singold gerätetechnik gmbh offers a wide range of pneumatic knockers so you’ll have no problem finding one perfectly suited to your specific needs. Application temperature is crucial The most important factor in selecting the optimum knocker is the application temperature. For temperatures up to 60 °C, a standard version with a plastic piston can be used. For applications above 60 °C, the piston is made of aluminium. Cover and anchor plate, tube and striker are made of aluminium, steel or stainless steel, depending on the individual application situation. The pneumatic knocker can even be used with wall temperatures of over 140 °C. A T-shaped welding plate to increase the distance to the hot wall, a heat-dissipating plate and a heat insulation plate are available as accessories in this

K160: The Most Powerful Pneumatic Knocker in the World
singold gerätetechnik gmbh produces and sells the world’s most powerful pneumatic knocker. While competitor models can at best cover a wall thickness of up to 12 mm, the K160 can knock walls with a thickness of up to 25 mm. This makes it suitable for massive, heavy-duty containers. For example, it is used in the mining industry for discharge chutes, in the building materials industry for gravel bunker outlets, in the chemical industry for mixing plants, in the lime industry for silos with a capacity of over 200 tonnes and in the fertiliser industry. Supernatural Strength The powerful model has an impact energy of 423 newton metres. This corresponds to the energy generated when a weight of 42.3 kg is dropped from a height of 1 metre. This high impact energy cannot be achieved with human forces, even if a 20 kg sledgehammer were used. The reason? The acceleration and, consequently, the final velocity of the impact weight in the knocker is far higher than the final velocity that a human being can generate. When the piston, which is designed as a magnet, is
