AirShark for Flexible Packaging - AES

The AES AirShark

Ideal for In-House Flexible Packaging Production

Air material separators and industrial fans are the key components of successful pneumatic conveyance systems, providing conveyance power on the front end of the scrap removal process and managing scrap on the back end before baling or compacting. Selecting the right size and type of air material separator is a critical decision that can impact safety, scrap conveyance system performance, and day-to-day operations of in-house packaging production for major retailers.

The experts at AES can help you choose the right components for your pneumatic conveyance system. If you’re producing flexible packaging in-house, you need a robust and versatile material separator with high-volume air handling capacity to manage complex material substrates and films. The AES AirShark™ easily handles these materials without wrapping around rotors or screens for continuous, worry-free operation. Watch the video below to learn more.

About the AirShark

The AES AirShark™ is a robust, versatile rotary material separator with a high air handling capacity and a compact footprint for indoor and outdoor applications. An alternative to traditional screen separators and cyclones, the AirShark™ is a simple and effective way to separate material waste and manufacturing byproducts from the airstream without generating any dust.

The flexible-tip sealed rotor allows the user to position the fan upstream or downstream from the separator. The separator eliminates down pressure at the material discharge chute, and the durable, fully sealed V-apex rotor design requires no adjustments for material type.
