Use Streamtek Air Conveyor to remove and convey scrap metal from your CNC machine production line

Convey scrap metal

Philip has a full fledged CNC Machine Shop in Denver, Colorado. Each week his shop generates 10-15 drums of aluminum shavings/chips; not the long ‘stringy’ type. These shavings/chips are constantly being hand bombed into the main holding container in the back of the shop.

Using the Streamtek 2-1/2″ Threaded Stainless Steel Air Conveyor, Philip was able to construct a conveying system using standard 2.5″ Metal Pipe which incorporated a 15′ vertical lift & 35′ horizontal that went back to the holding container. As the shavings left the CNC/Late, the shavings were funneled into the Air Conveying system.

Philip made certain to install a Streamtek Auto Drain Filter Separator to ensure the Air Conveyor received a clean dry source of compressed air. The Filter Separator will stop contaminants from entering the air conveyor and gradually clogging it up, resulting in poor performance.
