Aeroflow Aero Mechanical Conveyors

Technical Details: Features & Benefits

Our Aeroflow aero mechanical conveyor is one of the most efficient methods of conveying materials in terms of its dust-free and clean handling properties.  This type of conveyor is designed and custom-built for the product to be conveyed and ideal for a variety of applications in many industries.

Conveying Angles

Aero mechanical conveyors can convey materials at any angle from 0° and 90° without loss of capacity.  The range of configurations is almost limitless.  This enables the widest choice of system layout options, using standard components, to optimize available factory space.

Principle of Operation

Our Aeroflow conveyor has a tubular design where a continuous wire rope assembly with accurately spaced polyurethane discs move at high speed. At each end of the conveyor, the rope assembly runs around specially designed sprockets, one of which drives the rope assembly and the other tensions it. The drive assembly can be located at either the inlet or outlet of the conveyor depending on its length or to meet plant requirements.

Aero Mechanical Conveyor centrifugally ejects material at outlet

The action of the rope and disc assembly travelling at high speed sets up an airstream running at the same velocity. As material is fed into the airstream, it is fluidized and conveyed to the outlet where it is centrifugally ejected.  High capacities are possible with low energy requirements and with minimal product degradation and separation.
