Baseblow Air Conveyor

BW Integrated Systems’ Baseblow Air Conveying Systems utilize air, along with louver patterns in the air deck, to convey a variety of containers including metal cans, PET bottles, HDPE bottles, caps, pucks, boxes and more.  Baseblow air conveying contains fewer moving parts which keeps maintenance and spare parts to a minimum comparing it to mechanical conveyors.  The unique design of the conveyor allows containers to remain upright to alleviate downed containers. The conveyed product repeats instantaneously, throughout the population of containers in the product flow, as long as downstream demand continues.  The faster a downstream device withdraws containers; the faster succeeding containers will follow.  This allows for condensed layouts or increased accumulation.

  • Low / no maintenance when compared to mechanical conveyor
  • Lightning quick gap make-up capability allows for condensed layouts or increased accumulation
  • Containers remain upright, no downed containers created
  • Metal cans are typically conveyed at speeds of 2,000 CPM
  • PET or HDPE bottles are typically conveyed at 500 BPM
