Air Operated Conveyors
Compressed Air Operated conveyors utilize the venturi principle to create a high vacuum for conveying solid material as well as fumes and gasses over a large distance. Unlike the Coanda effect which moves a large volume and creates a low vacuum in air flow amplifiers, the venture principle moves less volume but creates a higher vacuum. A big advantage of these systems is their compact size, instant response time, and portability. They have no moving parts. Their flow rate is easily controlled with a pressure regulator.
Common applications include hopper loading (resin in the plastic industry, bottle caps in bottling), material conveying of all sorts, waste and trim removal, transferring parts from one location to another, chip removal, tensioning fiber, and in filling operations.
