The Grisley ASC Box Plenum™ is specifically designed for new installations, where fugitive materials such as dust must be controlled and eliminated. The Box Plenum™ design allows for an air-supported return, which eliminates the problems caused by dust on the return side of the conveyor. The Box Plenum™ is frequently incorporated as a shuttle conveyor, as well as a ship loader.
The Industry's Best Conveyor
Setting new standards for high performance
Through its superior engineering our design has made a truly cost-effective air-supported conveyor a reality. The distinct advantage of the ASC is in its precisely-calibrated plenum design and air-tight fastening technique. Because of their benefits, the grain industry now looks to air-supported conveyors as a more efficient alternative to traditional conveying methods. And the Grisley ASC now makes that alternative cost-effective and reliable.
Eliminates mechanical friction
Renders conventional conveying methods obsolete
Grisley’s engineering solves many of the problems associated with conventional conveyors because it eliminates their source: mechanical friction. Using air instead of moving parts, its smoother operation makes the Grisley ASC a better conveyor precisely because it brings the costs of product loss, maintenance, and particle pollution under control.
Simplicity is key
A low horsepower fan forces air through a calibrated series of holes in a plenum. This thin film of air supports up to 200 pounds per square foot at high speeds with no mechanical friction. A single fan supports up to 600 feet of conveyor. This process creates a smooth and even cushion of air on which the conveyor belt glides with ease. Using this consistent airflow, the Grisley ASC’s belt floats effortlessly in the plenum.
