BAM Conveyors

On this page:

PFC PRODUCT FLOW CONVEYORS

Product Flow Conveyors (or air slides) are air-activated gravity conveyors used for the conveyance of fine powders. Low pressure air is blown into the sealed lower housing of the assembly and permeates through a needled polyester media, thereby fluidizing the product being fed into the upper housing. Due to a predetermined angle of decline (6-8 degrees), the product will flow like water down a river bed. Available in standard and low profile configurations.

ADVANTAGES

  • No Moving Parts: (Except the low pressure blower)
  • Conveys Fine Powder: (The finer the better)
  • High Volume Flow Rates at Minimal Cost: (24" X 24"=22,000 CFH)     
  • Very Low Maintenance: (Media may blind over years of wear from abrasive products)            
  • Enclosed & Dust-Tight: (Excellent safety issue)                                                                            
  • Low Power Consumption: (Less than any other powered system)  

PFCBA BIN ADAPTERS

PFCBA- Product Flow Conveyor Bin Adapters are used to withdraw material through the side of a silo. They can be retrofitted to an existing silo where withdrawal through the bottom of the silo is not an option. They work on the same premise as a product flow conveyor. A variety of sizes to meet individual needs is available.

PFCBVP BUTTERFLY VALVES

PFCBVP- Product Flow Conveyor Butterfly Valves are used to shut down and contain the material flow through a product flow conveyor system for maintenance purposes or to facilitate material diversion to another section of the system. Available with pneumatic actuation (pictured), as well as, electrical and manual actuation. A variety of sizes and actuation configurations are available.

PFBB- PRODUCT FLOW BIN BOTTOM

PFBB- Bin Bottoms are used to promote the steady flow of granular or powdered
materials from storage bins, hoppers, or silos. Bin bottoms are made of
carbon steel or stainless steel and are flange mounted to silos and connect
directly to other bulk material handling equipment. Aeration from a positive
displacement blower fluidizes the stored material on a specified slope through
a needled polyester material toward a narrow opening then into other
transferance equipment. They promote mass flow and reduce particle
segregation. In some cases, vibratory bin activators and discharge aids such
as air cannons are used in conjunction with bin bottoms to break up bridges
or arches in bulk material. Bin bottoms are often fitted with integral manifolds
to distribute the air into the individual chambers. A variety of sizes are available.

PFT- PRODUCT FLOW TROUGH

PFT- Product Flow Troughs are used to transport bulk materials
along the sloped wall of a storage silo toward an opening
for dispersal. Under normal conditions, a powder runs down
a slope only when the slope of the wall exceeds the natural
angle of repose of said powder. Using a centrifugal blower
to pressurize a trough's air chamber, that is separated from the
silo's product by a needled polyester membrane, the material
in the silo is fluidized (see below) and flows with gravity along
a slope as slight as 6-8 degrees. This priciple allows material
to be loaded and unloaed as well as blended without
compacting. Fluidization can be described as air passing
around the product particles and nullifying the friction
between the particles thus changing the flow characteristics
of the product to a condition approximating that of a fluid.
