Air Conveyors - Ring-Vac™ Pneumatic Conveying System


Air Conveyors, Ring-Vac, Pneumatic, Conveying, System, Air, Conveyor
Coated aluminum and high temperature stainless steel Ring-Vac™ Air Conveyor can convey all types of solids in large volumes over great distances with no moving parts.

Air Conveyors - Ring-Vac™ Pneumatic Conveying System has virtually no moving parts, conveys air at high rates and long distances. Utilizing compressed air for a powerful, efficient venturi action along its length in a compact design for high capacity conveying over large distances.

 

Air Conveyors - Ring-Vac™ Pneumatic Conveying System is available in both coated aluminum or high temperature stainless steel. Simply clamp a standard hose size to each end of the Ring-Vac™ to create this high energy conveying system. No moving parts for maintenance free operation with capacity and flow controlled with a pressure regulator.

 

Air Conveyors - Ring-Vac™ Pneumatic Conveying System is available in 1" (25mm), 1-1/4" (32mm), 1-1/2" (38mm) and 2" (51mm) sizes. Any size beyond that can be prohibitive for most applications due to high compressed air requirements.

 

In addition, beyond 3", the vacuum ability begins to drop significantly except for highly intermittent applications. For applications beyond 2", a blower system often becomes far more economical except in a rare number of possible applications. However, larger size versions are available if required as well as special sizes.

Ring-Vac™ Compressed Air Conveying System - How It Works


 

Compressed air enters at point (A) into a annular plenum chamber and injected into the throat of the unit though directed nozzles. These jets of compressed air create a vacuum at the inlet (C) which draws in material and accelerates it through the unit and out at (D) conveying the material over a great vertical or horizontal distance.

 

Features
Benefits

  • Standard sizes to fit standard hose diameter for easy clamping. Threaded versions connect easily to regular pipe thread: 1" (25mm), 1-1/4" (32mm), 1-1/2" (38mm), 2" (51mm), 2-1/2" (64mm), and 3" (76mm). Special sizes can be manufactured if required.

  • Utilizing a pressure regulator will control the flow material.

  • Instant ON/OFF with no moving parts, no electricity or explosion hazard.

  • Longer life in difficult environments
    than competitive models.

  • Ease of use.




  • Simple and easy control of material flow.

  • Maintenance free operation.
