Fox Venturi Eductors in the Construction & Paving Industries
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.
