Aeromechanical conveyors

Aeromechanical conveyors


These aeromechanical conveyors, also known as aeromechanical lifts or generically as disk conveyors, are ideal for long sections of pipeline conveying densely packed and/or non-fluent powder vertically, thanks to the fluidity generated in the powder during its passage through the line.

Another advantage is the ability to empty the line completely so as to transfer to a higher level a quantity pre-weighed at the lower level without losing accuracy.

Their operating system consists of the following elements:

1) a loading zone equipped with mechanical dispensers of the volumetric and gravimetric type which can draw from silos, hoppers or bulk bag emptying stations.

2) a disk conveyor system with flexible elements (cables or ropes) on which the solid particles are conveyed in suspension. The disks of antistatic plastic material are positioned at constant pitch on the conveyor tapes creating, in action, small suction chambers that ensure the non-demixing of the materials and prevent any deterioration of delicate, crumbly materials.

3) unloading zone that uses centrifugal force through appropriately sized discharge outlets


Emptying of Bulk Bags containing Titanium Dioxide using bulk bag emptying structure with lateral pistons, flat-bottomed extractor, screw extractor to dose the product in the disk conveyor

Disk conveyor for loading the entire contents into a horizontal ribbon mixer on load cells. Removal from hopper of empty bags with lump breaker and finisher for hygroscopic powders.

Bulk Bag emptying station with gravimetric dosage in the aeromechanical conveyor. This solution empties the entire contents, dosed in advance, into the horizontal ribbon powder mixer positioned at a higher level on a platform.
