Conveyors and
Conveyance Systems

Conveyors are a key component in any automated material handling system. Mechanical conveyors employ a variety of belt styles or augers to transport solid materials or products from a point of generation to a point of collection or shipment. Pneumatic conveyors or air/material separators are typically used to move lightweight materials in a stream of fast-moving air. AES designs both mechanical and pneumatic conveyance systems to move whatever needs to be moved for further processing.

Mechanical Conveyors

AES offers a broad range of mechanical conveyor types and belt styles, including slider bed, chain belt, drag chain, and augers for a host of applications.

  • Slider Bed
  • Chain Belt
  • Drag Chain
  • Auger-Style
  • Metering
  • Sorting
  • Magnetic
  • Screening
  • Transfer
  • Product Handling

Specialty Conveyors

The AES pit-less conveyor was developed for the secure destruction industry to facilitate the easy unloading of paper from mobile shredding trucks. Unlike the typical configuration, our design eliminates the need for a concrete pit in which to dump the payload, saving thousands of dollars in building alteration costs. This conveyor is ideal when used as part of an AES truck unloading and baling system.

Pneumatic Conveyance Systems

Pneumatic conveyance or air- material separation systems use high-velocity air to transport materials from process to process within a system. Specialized fans and blowers create the airflow needed to move the materials through enclosed metal ducting, often terminating in an air separator. These systems are also used to sort and separate different materials from one another based on relative size or density.

  • Trim Waste
  • Dust & Fines
  • Sorting & Classifying
  • Tag & Label
  • Non-Woven & films
  • Grains & Foodstuffs
  • Pharmaceuticals & Powders
