Air slider is the most economical way of conveying powders. Air slider is designed to transport fluidized loose material taking advantage of its variable properties while in that condition. The most common application of air slider is conveying at a declination of 5-15°, the angle depends on the type of transported material. Air sliders are most often used over the length up to a few hundred meters.
Advantages of an air slider:
- low maintenance costs as there are no rotating parts that come in contact with the materials conveyed;
- minimum renovation cost (requires only replacement of the fabric);
- high energy save per unit of transported material;
- low investment cost.
