Air slide loading systems use a slope that harnesses gravity to convey fine powders. This is achieved by forcing air through a porous fabric for the required fluidization. The steel-structure boxed frames & housings, abrasion-resistant polyester fabric, and high quality blowers combine to form loaders that are rugged and versatile enough to handle materials like cement, alumina, hydrated lime, fly ash, plastic powders and semolina. Additionally, air-slide-based loaders are fully enclosed and self-cleaning and have no moving parts. This means they are quiet, dust-free and require almost no maintenance, even when operating at loading rates of over 1,000 cubic meter per hour.
