PEBCO® Fluidized Conveying equipment (commonly referred to as “air slides”) transports materials that can be fluidized by aeration, such as cement, fly ash, alumina, etc. PEBCO® air slides are optimal for fluidized transport. Once fluidized, these materials will flow steadily along a decline of approximately 8 degrees but varies depending on the product handled and flow rates required. Material can be transported without the need for mechanical assistance.
PEBCO® offers fluidized bin bottoms and inserts to promote material discharge from the storage vessel and fluidized conveyors for point-to-point transfer. Multiple gate designs to control the material flow are available from manual/maintenance gates to automated gates for remote flow regulation and shut-off. Turn-boxes, diverters, fans, and blowers complete the range of products offered to move your product from storage to a quality PEBCO® loading spout.
