Hight-speed tubular drag conveyors
High Speed Tubular Drag Conveyors - Aeroelevators
The high speed mechanical tubular drag conveyor - aeroelevator - is designed to elevate powdery products completely vertically, being able to transport products with complicated behaviours.
The mechanical conveyor works with a steel cable, with plastic discs attached to it, tightly fitted to the pipe. When operating at high speed, suction is generated at the point of origin, which causes the product to circulate dispersed between two discs, with a certain amount of air that keeps it very loose and volatile, preventing the product from sticking to the walls of the pipe.
The conveying capacities are up to 35,000 litres/hour, depending on the setting of the equipment.
Some of the advantages of the equipment could be summarised as follows:
● Vertical lifts up to 20 metres high.
● Compatible with powder and granular products.
● Low energy consumption.
● Particles of different mass are not separated during conveying.
● Mechanical simplicity.
● Sleeve filters and compressed air are not required.
● Atex certification.
