Fox Ceramic-Lined Eductors for Pneumatic Conveying of Abrasive Powders and Solids

Fox eductors with replaceable ceramic-liners have been installed in thousands of systems, conveying hundreds of different products in dozens of countries. They permit the elimination of rotary airlocks, screw conveyors, and other equipment that require maintenance and enable maintenance-free conveying of extremely fine and extremely abrasive particulates.

Plastics Applications: Pneumatic Conveying Pellets and Plastics with No Moving Parts

Fox Eductors have been used since 1963 to convey plastic pellets with no moving parts. They are primarily used to:

  • Eliminate angelhair, streamers, and pellet degradation/damage caused by airlocks and unnecessarily high transport velocity.
  • Enable quick-clean-outs when cross-contamination is a critical concern.
  • Convey abrasive, glass-filled pellets without wear.
  • Convey plastic regrind or chips reliably and without maintenance.

Construction/Paving Applications

Fox Venturi eductors have been used successfully to pneumatically conveying small-particle size construction materials – such as flint rock, pea gravel, and screened gravel and aggregate.

Such eductor conveying solutions can use portable compressors, operating at 50 – 80 psig to convey up to 100 feet or more through rigid or flex hose.

Materials can be dumped manually into freestanding hoppers and then conveyed—with no moving parts—to their end use site. A recent application used eductors to convey flint rock to sites needing repair across the span of long road bridges—eliminating wheelbarrow and forklift traffic.
