AIR SLIDE CONVEYORS

 

Air slide conveyors or sometimes also referred to as aeration conveyors, are an efficient way of gravity conveying fine aeratable powders such as cement, fly ash, lime and many more. There are no moving parts thus maintenance is very low, an air slide conveyor is compact and uses minimal space and it furthermore it is an enclosed system that is dust tight.

 

An air slide essentially uses a bed of air to fluidise the material which then gravity flows along the slight decline of the conveyor. A permeable membrane separates the air chamber from the material chamber with supports preventing the aeration fabric from hanging through. Air requirements are small and at low pressures. For high temperature applications special fabric is used which allows product inlet temperatures of up to 250oC.

 

Bulk Technik has standard size air slides with the end sections being custom made to suit our customer’s requirements. The air slide troughs have been designed to ensure even air flow through the aeration fabric with minimal air flow requirements. This efficient design not only ensures constant product flow within the air slide, but also reduced air requirements and a smaller filtration system are required. Bulk Technik can offer a complete system which is supplied with a blower, interconnecting piping and valves as well as an air filtration system and inlet and outlet knife gate valves.
