The AirLift Pipe Conveyor | APC

The Airlift Pipe Conveyor (APC) is a high speed, air levitated conveyor with an integral design that can be extruded from HDPE or fabricated from steel.

The result is a frictionless conveyor that moves at up to 30m/s to carry bulk materials at rail speed. Its difference is its exceptionally low cost of manufacture, installation and operation.

The Current Conveyor Market

Globally, a massive amount of mined ore and coal are transported by belt conveyor. It is estimated that each particle of ore travels between 1-10km on conveyors. A similarly substantial amount of money is spent installing and maintaining belt conveyors.

Imagine the impact of a technology such as the APC on this market.

Conveyors Reinvented

The APC redefines bulk material handling. Now a belt conveyor can be installed elevated, on-ground, buried or submerged.

Fully enclosed with no dust, noise and a significantly reduced carbon footprint. The APC is the environmentally friendly bulk materials transport solution.

Elevated

Install in an elevated position on a structure or under suspension.

Onground

Lay onground like a water pipe. Unlike a conventional overland conveyor no structure is required.

Buried

Bury it when passing through environmentally sensitive or suburban environments.

Submerged

Submerge it like a water pipe to convey bulk materials to offshore ship loading facilities.
