An aero-mechanical conveyor (AMC) is a high capacity, totally enclosed mechanical conveyor that handles powders, granules, pellets and flakes. In the conveyor, a continuous rope, with a series of equally spaced discs secured to it, travels through a flow and return tube arrangement.
The Aero-mechanical conveyor can be used with multiple inlets or outlets, move product vertically, horizontally, or at varying angles up to distances of 60 feet. They can be easily connected to other equipment such as Bulk Dischargers or Fillers and can be mounted on a mobile support frame so that one machine can be used on a multiplicity of applications.
The Idealtec aero-mechanical conveyor consists of six main components: inlet housing, outlet housing, set of two conveyor tubes, rope & disc assembly, electric drive and a gravity inlet.
