Air Supported Conveyor Definitions

Enclosed Conveyor – The Enclosed Conveyor is designed for free flowing products in all types of industries and is the best choice for long distance conveying.

Belt Conveyor – A belt conveyor system consists of two or more pulleys (sometimes referred to as drums), with an endless loop of carrying medium—the conveyor belt—that rotates about them. One or both of the pulleys are powered, moving the belt and the material on the belt forward..

Air Supported Conveyor – An Air Supported Conveyor is designed to convey free flowing dry products in all types of industries, especially in applications where dust containment is crucial. Its smooth transport and constant air flow means materials stay on the conveyor belt and dusting is practically eliminated.

Conveyor Belt – A conveyor belt is a continuous moving band of fabric, rubber, or metal used for moving objects from one place to another.

Air Glide Conveyor – An Air Glide Conveyor is a development of the traditional belt conveyor, but instead of carrying idlers it employs a cushion of air, being the means of supporting the loaded belt between the feed and the discharge, creating a frictionless air supported conveyor belt.
