Air cushion belt conveyor

Air cushion belt conveyor

The belt conveyors that use rollers to support the conveyor belts have already been widely used in all industries, But the bearing form is intermittent contact bearing, which causes the vibration when conveying materials with bigger transportation resistance. In order to overcome these shortages, Asiakar Co. Conveyor is devoted to researching new type belt conveyor, constantly launching Air Cushion Belt Conveyor.  Their common characteristics non-contact continuous bearing. An air-cushion conveyor is a kind of new-type and heavy-tank-type belt conveyor that can realize the large transport capacity. The air cushion belt conveyor can apply air cushion to replace the supporting roller bearing and change the rolling friction of supporting roller belt conveyor into fluid friction, as a result, it has reduced the tractive forces of driving device and the operation resistance of belt conveyor. Meanwhile, when there is the same transport capacity and conveying process, the power consumption is saved for 15-30% than the supporting roller belt conveyor. Apart from the part about air cushion formation, the structure of the Air Cushion Belt conveyor is similar with the one of general belt conveyor, that’s to say, air cushion belt conveyor contains the blower, connecting line, gas tank and so on, removing most of the bearing rollers.

Asiakar Co. designs and manufactures Air Cushion Belt Conveyor to meet the needs of many industries, such as Steel Smelter Project / Cement industries / Nonferrous metal industries / Aluminum Smelter Project / Chemical Industries / Oil and Refining Industries / Minerals and mining Processing / Food industries / Wheat, Cereal and other grain silo/ Warehouse and silo Aeration Cycle Systems/grain silo and Warehouse equipment / Animal Feed Plants. foundry and transportation of bulk materials such as grain, salt, coal, ore, sand and etc. Air cushion belt conveyor can meet the transportation requirements for special materials. The blast capacity of the blower is enough to meet the air consumption of air cushion type belt conveyor and can fill the gas tank within several seconds to reach enough pressure intensity for forming air cushion. Even if the materials on the belt are intermittent, the conveyor still works normally because pressure air always needs to expel from the air hole of the gas tank, without affecting the air cushion at the bearing point. Because the pressure of air is bigger than the gravity of materials, with the addition that air has a certain speed, fine powder materials will not enter air cushion space for the gas tank and conveyor belt abrasion. Moreover, Air Cushion Belt Conveyors can also adopt the closed circulating air chamber to meet the conveying requirements of toxic materials, such as the chemical field and medical industry, etc.

This kind of Belt Conveyors are mainly used in the transmission of granular materials such as sand, stone, coal, iron ore, cement, clay, and many others also.

The Categories of these conveyors includes four types of full air cushion opening type, full air cushion sealing type, blending opening type, and blending sealing type. We specialize in the design and manufacture of custom-built equipment that can immediately improve the safety, reliability, and efficiency of your order as your special material compared to other brands.
