Air slide fabric

Woven and nonwoven fabrics are used in a variety of industries and applications. Air slide fabric is also named air slide belt, conveyor belt, and air-permeable fabric. Aeration fabrics are made of natural or synthetic fibers in accordance with their specific temperature resistance.

How to make air slide fabrics

Air slide woven fabrics are normally woven from more than one set of warps, while other blinder warps are used to interlace through the fabric and thereby hold the entire construction together.
We use high tenacity polyester Filament Yarn and follow established process weaving to impart the suitable properties to Air slides Fabric.
In air slide weaved fabric polyester yarns are produced in different blends and qualities (filament polyester in the warp, spun polyester in the weft). Therefore it is important to use only high-quality and thoroughly Selected Multifilament polyester yarns. These yarns are pre-shrunk and highly Strengthened.

Top 5 Applications for air slide fabrics

Air slide fabric is a belt fabric used for pneumatic transmission of cement, equipped with a fluid bed and powder mixing tank, which is special and controllable. Air permeability can help to improve the conveying efficiency. This air slide fabric requires a special loom, the fabric is sufficiently heavy and strong.

Air slide fabrics are used in various industries:

  1. Cement industry.
  2. Aluminum, lime, and gypsum industry.
  3. Power plants (coal-fired).
  4. Pharmaceutical industry.
  5. Chemical industry.

6 Required Properties for air slide fabrics

Air slide fabrics are exposed to substantial stresses from temperature, contact pressure, friction, tensile stress, and moisture so the essential required properties for air slide fabrics are:

  1. Constant air permeability.
  2. High abrasion resistance.
  3. High tensile strength in both directions.
  4. High resistance to wear & degradation.
  5. Resistance to decay and rot prevents the formation of bacteria and fungus.
  6. Temperature resistance up to 150℃

Methods of pneumatic conveyance

“dilute phase” and “dense phase” in the dilute phase, relatively high volumes of air moving at high speeds are used to transfer materials entrained in the air (or other gas) stream. In the dense phase, a low volume of air at high pressures is used to transfer nearly solid masses of materials. Dilute phase systems can be further divided into “ pull “systems that operate below atmospheric pressure, “ push “systems that operate above atmospheric pressure, and hybrid “ push-pull” systems, which are frequently used when materials need to be unloaded and then conveyed over a long distance.

Air Gravity conveyors

The air slide air-activated gravity conveyor is the ultimate of all pneumatic conveying system applications. Here is a system that uses the forces of gravity to do most of the work without any moving parts. Material is fluidized through a porous media with low-pressure air. Material flow is achieved by sloping the air slide to match the fluidized angle of repose of the powdered material.
