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.See technical specs
lower capital cost compared to conventional conveying.
lower operating cost compared to conventional conveying.
maintenance cost for the conveyor section.
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.See FAQ

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.
Install in an elevated position on a structure or under suspension.
Lay onground like a water pipe. Unlike a conventional overland conveyor no structure is required.
Bury it when passing through environmentally sensitive or suburban environments.
Submerge it like a water pipe to convey bulk materials to offshore ship loading facilities.
