Lightweight, fluidizable dry bulk solid powders
< 1% (Otherwise, materials can become too heavy to transfer and/or can harden inside the conveyor, creating blockages.)
< 50 mesh

180°F | 80°C for standard conveyor, with modifications that allow up to 400°F | 205°C
Conveyor Construction Options
304 stainless steel, 316L stainless steel, A36 mild steel
Media Construction Options
Needled polyester, stainless steel media, porous stone, plastic
Media Support Grate Construction Options
A36 mild steel, 304 or 316L stainless steel
Low pressure, air-gravity conveyance only
Dry air, using a centrifugal pressure blower or a positive displacement blower. Regulated compressed air from the plant service air system can contain moisture and/or oil, which can combine with materials and create clogs along the porous media.
Recommended Air Pressure
1 psig | 6.9 kPa, to be introduced at the beginning of every 10 ft | 3m section. This recommendation is subject to change, based on handled material characteristics. Contact us to discuss your application.
Available in square or rectangular sizes
Standard Size/Conveyor Width
6 – 16 in | 150 – 400 mm (even sizes standard)
Dimensions may vary, depending on material(s) handled and application. Contact us to discuss custom sizing options.
Standard Size/Conveyor Slope
Typically, Aero-Slide Conveyors are installed at downward slopes of6 – 8° from horizontal. Depending on bulk density and other material characteristics, different materials may necessitate different sliding angles (2 – 16° from horizontal). Contact us to discuss options.
Standard Size/Conveyor Length
Conveyor length may vary, depending on transfer distance needed in a given application. Aero-Slide Conveyors are manufactured in sections of 10 ft | 3 m length. Shorter sections can also be manufactured to accommodate exact length. Contact us to discuss custom sizing options.
Standard flange pattern, ANSI, DIN, JIS Custom flanges are available
