The Belt Conveyor is fully enclosed

A new air-supported belt conveyor design has been announced, and it is called The Belt Conveyorâ„¢. It is composed of a standard belt supported on a bed of air pressure over a formed steel trough. This design eliminates idlers and all the maintenance issues associated with idlers.

A simple cradle system supports the formed pans and covers, with a central air plenum providing the air pressure to suspend the belt. The only rotating elements are the head and tail pulleys.

A Test and Demonstration Center with full sized equipment has been established in the Atlanta area to showcase the capabilities of this new design. Contact BRUKS for inquiries, and for additional details.
