Air Conveyor

Air conveyor, also called asair conveying system, or air flow conveyor, orpneumatic conveyor, or pneumatic conveying system, is designed to convey empty PET, HDPE or other lightweight plastic bottles and are most often installed between the bottle blowing machine, bottle unscrambler or de-palletizer and the filling machine. Air conveying system conveys empty plastic bottles by the neck of the bottles instead of by the base of the bottles.

Air conveyors are ideal for conveying plastic bottles or containers quickly and efficiently in high speed bottling lines. The air conveyor is a buffer link between the downstream and upstream packing machines, with max. production capacity at 72,000 bottles per hour.During the transport, bottles are held by their necks, the air conveyor is equipped with adjustable guard-rail which makes the conveyor compatible with bottles of different designs. Height of conveyors can also be adjusted.

Summit’s air conveyors are built in a solid stainless steel frame. They are equipped with high efficiency motors, have an automatic lubrication system and require low maintenance. Through careful control of the air flow rate and air purity, as well as through the smooth transport of bottle neck, our air conveyors can protect your bottles from physical damage or contamination.
