Highly Flexible Layout Capabilities for Maximized Floor Space

PRAB Pneumatic Conveyors offer operation and installation flexibility. This conveyor is designed to pick-up wet or dry scrap directly from CNC machining centers and transports it to a central chip processing system or load-out container. This type of tubular conveyance allows for installation near the ceiling or in tight spaces which provides minimal floor space for operation, and allows for easy reconfiguration when modifying plant space.

PRAB Pneumatic Conveyor

No Plant Air Required

Air Transfer Options:

Systems are available in both positive pressure and vacuum conveyor models- depending on the application.

Positive Air Blower System

  • PRAB chip fan transports dry chips up to 250 ft (76 m) or more
  • Positive displacement blower or PD pump can be fed by rotary air locks or educators for multiple chip inputs and long distances
  • Cyclone receivers reduce chip velocity when conveyed through the system
  • Available in abrasion-resistant steel or manganese (for severe-duty) liners
  • Automatic swivel or single discharge chutes

Negative Pressure Vacuum System

  • Vacuum blower transports wet or dry chips with multiple pick-up points to central chip processing location
  • Hardened bends and filter/cyclone receivers
  • Nickel-plated and abrasion-resistant wear items
  • Cyclone receivers reduce chip processing velocity as they are conveyed through the system
  • Available in abrasion-resistant steel or manganese (for severe-duty) liners
  • Automatic swivel or single discharge chutes
