If you have a question on aeromechanical conveyors or bulk materials handling, please ask us. We'll get right back to you, and we welcome additions to this FAQ.
Yes… it will convey a wide range of powders and granules. Self-emptying allows for weighing before or after conveying, and for dedicated batches to be elevated.
When the rope is tensioned correctly, the conveyor is very quiet. There is very little difference between the sound of a full conveyor or an empty one, and the conveyor can run quite happily empty.
Due to the low capital cost and the relatively small motor, the aero-mechanical conveyor is one of the most cost-effective conveyors on the market. Its power-to-material transfer figures are much better than pneumatic conveying.
Powders, granules, pellets, flakes or flocks—from adipic acid to zirconium sand, Powderflight™ aeromechanical conveyors handle a wide variety of materials with minimal product degradation and no separation of blended material.
Very favourably! In terms of cost per tonne handled, we believe that few—if any—alternatives come close.
Yes… from horizontal to vertical. Vertical operation and moving closer to process reduces the required floor space to a small footprint.
If the original specification of the conveyor is done correctly, the material is fed into the conveyor in a controlled manner, and the rope tension is checked regularly, a minimum of 3000 hours can be expected. Powderflight is the only aeromechanical conveyor that features twin adjusting screws, making belt tensioning faster, easier, and more accurate.
