CMT provides a wide range of Aeromechanical Conveyors. The Aeromechanical Conveyor is an efficient and low cost method of conveying solids and are an excellent choice for conveying products on a batch or limited basis.
The Aeromechanical Conveyor consists of a series of polymer disks, affixed to an aircraft quality SS wire cable on 6” centers. This rope assembly rotates at speeds between 200 – 400 FPM, thereby creating a transfer motive, air, which conveys your product. Material discharges, via centrifugal force, at the outlet. There is no need for dust collection, as with a pneumatic system, as the air volume is minimal and remains in the Aeromechanical Conveyor housing. Since the conveyed material is “trapped” within the 6” space of the polymer disks, the Aeromechanical Conveyor is an excellent choice when segregation must be avoided.
Principle of Operation Our Aeroflow aero mechanical conveyors are of a tubular design in which a continuous wire rope assembly with accurately spaced polyurethane discs move at high speed. At each end of the conveyor, the rope assembly runs around specially designed sprockets, one of which drives the rope assembly and the other tensions it. The drive assembly can be located at either the inlet or outlet of the conveyor depending on its length or to suit plant requirements.
