Poeth announces new AirConveyor

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Poeth has designed its new AirConveyor specifically for companies that want to transport powders, pellets and granulates cost-effectively and efficiently. The system offers companies 75% less maintenance costs after approx. 3 years operating time and consumes 40% less energy. The air-supported conveying system is suitable for damage-free transportation of bulk goods over short or extremely long distances. The AirConveyor generates low noise emissions and is dust-tight. As a result, the new conveying system also has a minimum impact on the environment.

Poeth's AirConveyor features a perforated channel and compact, specially designed fans. By providing a constant supply of exactly the right quantity of air, Poeth has succeeded in creating a powerful air cushion directly under the conveyor belt in its new conveying system. This powerful air cushion makes it possible to raise the conveyor belt, along with the bulk goods it carries, and keep it airborne based on the same principle as that used by a hovercraft.

Poeth's new AirConveyor eliminates 95% of all moving parts in comparison to traditional belt conveyor systems. As a result, Poeth's AirConveyor generates far less friction. This makes the air-supported conveying system 40% more energy-efficient and significantly reduces noise emissions (<80dbA). Fewer moving parts result in much less maintenance and negligible conveyor belt wear. Fewer rotating parts also provide less heat and less risk of exposures. The AirConveyor is suitable for extreme circumstances and difficult to reach places. This also makes the new AirConveyor extremely reliable and cost-efficient.

The new AirConveyor is capable of high-capacity transportation (3 m3/hour – 2000 m3/hour), both horizontally and vertically. Poeth offers its AirConveyor as an enclosed, dust-tight system for both indoor and outdoor application. The AirConveyor is also available according ATEX and Food Grade guidelines (FDA, EC 1935/2004 and 3.1B material certificates).
