Description

Best Air Conveyors from STREAMTEK

The Streamtek compressed air operated Air Conveyor connects to standard pipe, hose, or tube to create a powerful in-line conveyor.

What is an Air Conveyor System?

The Air Conveyor simply uses compressed air to move items or media! The compressed air is injected into the Air Conveyor using a standard NPT fitting. This creates a vacuum-like effect at one end and a high output flow at the other. The Air Conveyor system can transport all types of solids in large volumes over great distances, all with absolutely no moving parts. This pneumatic conveying system is available up to 3″ (76mm) in size.

How it does an Air Conveyor work?

Threaded Air Conveyor Animation

(A) Compressed air flows through the NPTF inlet and into a plenum chamber.

(B) The compressed air is then injected into the throat through directed nozzles, which in-turn creates a strong vacuum at the intake.

(C) The vacuum draws material in and accelerates it through the unit for conveying over long horizontal or vertical distances!

Air Conveyors Specifications

The Non-Threaded Air Conveyor is available in seven standard IN-STOCK diameters of 3⁄4″ (19mm), 1″ (25 mm), 1-1/4″ (32 mm), 1-1/2″ (38 mm), 2″ (51 mm), 2-1/2″ (64 mm), and 3″ (76 mm).

The Threaded Air Conveyor is available in six standard IN-STOCK diameters of 1″ (25 mm), 1-1/4″ (32 mm), 1-1/2″ (38 mm), 2″ (51 mm), 2-1/2″ (64 mm), and 3″ (76 mm).

Mounting:
Air Conveyors connect in-line to convert ordinary tubes and/or hoses into a powerful conveying system for the purpose of transferring trim, scrap, parts and other bulk materials. Non-threaded Air Conveyors are normally held in place by a hose and clamp. Threaded Air Conveyors thread into a standard NPT pipe. All Air Conveyors feature 4 mounting holes along the rear face (see “Dimensions” tab for details) for instances where a support bracket must be used. We offer optional support brackets in our “Accessories” section.

Air Supply Filtration:
A clean and dry source of compressed air is vital for the operation of our products. We recommend using a 5 Micron Air Filter.

Stainless Steel (Type 303) 400ºF (204ºC) Very Good

NOTE: There are generally four types of criteria to look for when selecting a proper model: the diameter of the parts being conveyed, the rate (weight or volume), the material of the Air Conveyor (stainless steel or aluminum), and the diameter of the hose and/or tube that is used. Call our factory at 1-705-770-4455 or email an Application Engineer at support@stream-tek.com and let us help determine which model would suit your application.
