Air Slides

Air Slides are sometimes known as Pneumatic Gravity Conveyors or Fluidised Gravity Bed Conveyors. However named, the operating principle is the same and is determined by the transfer of air under pressure into a plenum, which is located beneath a material support medium that allows the air to percolate through and into the product, moving it forward down a slight incline to the discharge point.

There are a number material options for the product bed, all air permeable, a simple cotton/polyester weave, specialised polyesters or sintered plastics but in conjunction with the client the Blo-Tech engineers will determine the correct air filtration bed together with the required air provision, necessary system filtration and the design of the conveying body.
