Pneumatic Scrap Conveyors are air transfer systems for moving wet or dry chips to a central chip processing system or load-out container. No plant air is required.

PRAB Pneumatic scrap conveyors offer operation and installation flexibility. This specific scrap material conveyor model is designed to pick up directly from CNC machining centers and transfer wet or dry material to a central chip processing system or load out container. The overhead piping of the pneumatic scrap conveyor allows for installation flexibility, whether you need to locate your scrap metal equipment near the ceiling or in tight spaces. The pneumatic design allows for easy reconfiguration when modifying plant space.

Benefits and features of PRAB Pneumatic Conveyors include:

  • Frees up valuable floor space by transferring material via overhead conveyance
  • Secure, clean transfer of material from “point of generation” or source- to destination
  • Improves plant safety
  • Eliminates fork lift traffic
  • Overhead piping allows for installation flexibility, whether you need to locate your scrap metal equipment near the ceiling or in tight spaces
  • Pneumatic design allows for easy reconfiguration when modifying plant space
  • Systems can be engineered with multiple pick-up points
  • Does not require plant air to operate
  • PLC controlled with HMI interface
