The floating conveyor belt, also known as AirConveyor or air supported conveyor belt or Airbelt, consists of a gutter with a few small holes and small specially designed fans. By constantly supplying the right amount of air, Poeth creates a powerful air film just below the conveyor belt within its new conveyor system. This powerful air film makes it possible to keep the conveyor belt, including bulk goods, floating. Only a single conveyor roller at the drive, tensioning and turning station is required to move the conveyor. Poeth`s new AirConveyor eliminates 95% of all rotating elements compared to traditional belt transport systems. As a result, Poeth`s AirConveyor has much less friction. This makes the airborne transport system 40% more energy efficient and, moreover, quiet
