What is a Air Conveyor?
Air Conveyor General Information
What type of Air Conveyors do we carry?
We offer two types of Air Conveyors in various sizes. Our non-threaded option has smooth ends allowing the user to install the Air Conveyor with a hose and clamp setup. We also offer an NPT threaded version which allows the user to thread the Air Conveyor to an NPT fitting or a coupling. Our Air Conveyors are also offered in aluminum or stainless steel material ranging in size from 0.75″ to 3″. Where extra moving force is required, one or more Air Conveyors can be mounted in a linear series to convey objects across greater distances.

How does a Air conveyor system work?
(1) Compressed air enters the plenum chamber through an NPT inlet.
(2) An Air Conveyor insert redirects the compressed air, creating an amplified vacuum at the conveyor intake
(3) The amplified vacuum draws objects in and conveys them through the unit
(4) Objects exit the unit at a high velocity from the outlet, which enables them to be conveyed across long distances.
All Air Conveyors feature four ¼”-20 mounting holes along the rear face. Typically, they are held in place by a rigid hose to an L bracket. Please visit our “Accessories” section for optional L brackets.
