Air Conveyor / Pneumatic Conveyor
Bevco’s Air Conveyor/ Pneumatic Conveyor is ideal for moving lightweight PET bottles which can tip over on standard conveyors. The Air Conveyor/ Pneumatic Conveyor runs at high speed (up to 1200 bpm) which allows the bottles to catch up when a gap is created between bottles in the production line due to equipment stoppage or pallet changeover.General Operations
Bottles are picked up and controlled by standard neck rings on the bottles. They are then transported in a single file using air pressure in a plenum. Since the bottles are captured at the neck, they will not fall down or tip.
The pressure in each zone of conveyor can be regulated with a manual damper located at each blower. This will control the speed range of the section, and allow each zone to be treated separately if required. A gauge at each zone allows for pressure to be set at appropriate levels.
A handwheel adjustable pick up section at the infeed/outlet section allows the air conveyor to pick up bottles of varying heights from tabletop or mattop conveyors and minimizes production changeover time.
