The Ideal Alternative to Traditional Separators and Cyclones

The AirShark provides a simple and effective method of separating waste paper, plastic films, trimmings and other light fraction materials typically handled in air conveyance systems. The fully sealed rotor provides a positive seal at the material discharge to maintain a clean environment in your facility. This versatile unit can operate under positive or negative pressure, which allows material to be conveyed without contacting the air handling fan. The V–apex rotor design is proven to be strong and durable for a long service life.

The AirShark provides high air handling capacity in a compact footprint. It can be installed indoors or outdoors and is ideal for both new installations and retrofits. Several sizes are available, with capacities up to 64,000 CFM. 

The AirShark is proudly made in the USA, and is available exclusively from AES.
