Fluidized Conveyor

PEBCO® Fluidized Conveying equipment (commonly referred to as “air slides”) transports materials that can be fluidized by aeration such as cement, fly ash, alumina, etc. PEBCO® air slides are optimal for fluidized transport. Once fluidized, these materials will flow steadily along a decline of approximately 8 degrees but varies depending on the product handled and flow rates required. Material can be transported without the need for mechanical assistance.

PEBCO® offers fluidized bin bottoms and inserts to promote material discharge from the storage vessel and fluidized conveyors for point-to-point transfer. Multiple gate designs to control the material flow are available from manual/maintenance gates to automated gates for remote flow regulation and shut-off. Turn-boxes, diverters, fans, and blowers complete the range of products offered to move your product from storage to a quality PEBCO® loading spout.


PEBCO® Fluidized Conveyors are capable of accommodating a wide variety of flow rates and feature inspection/cleanout covers on both the top and bottom of the conveyor.

  • Available in a wide variety of sizes to accommodate different flow rates
  • Typical lengths are 10’ and less. Assemble multiple sections for longer runs
  • Media supported on laser cut support grating:
    • Grating is less abrasive to underside of media resulting in longer life
    • Grating is mechanically trapped in the assembly, not welded, allowing for easier cleanout
  • 2” NPT inlets with ball valves to regulate airflow
  • Top and bottom inspection and cleanout covers
  • Lifting lugs integrated into flanges
  • Each section includes and integral laser cut identification plate
