The aero-mechanical conveyor is a high-capacity enclosed machine that can move product at any angle, including vertically, up to 60 ft., at rates of up to 120 tons/hour. Configurable for straight line, round-the-corner or Z-patterns, the mechanical-pneumatic conveyor is said to offer most of the benefits of pneumatic conveyors without the need for air filters to separate product from the conveying air. The high-speed conveyor uses a disk mechanism that fluidizes all flowable solids in a recirculating air stream, which provides low shear conveying of powders or particulates up to 5/8 inch.
