26/07/2017: Poeth announces the energy efficient and low maintenance, AirConveyor, for transporting powders and granulates

Poeth has designed its new AirConveyor specifically for companies that want to transport powders, pellets and granulates cost-effectively and efficiently
  
This innovative system offers companies 75 percent less maintenance costs after approx. three years operating time and consumes 40 percent less energy.
  
The air-supported conveying system from Poeth is suitable for damage-free transportation of bulk goods over short or extremely long distances. The AirConveyor generates low noise emissions and is dust-tight. As a result, the new conveying system from Poeth also has a minimum impact on the environment.

Powerful air cushion supports the conveyor belt without the need for rollers
Poeth has developed a new and efficient generation conveying systems where the conveyor belt floats on a cushion of air. Poeth's AirConveyor features a perforated channel and compact, specially designed fans.

By providing a constant supply of exactly the right quantity of air, Poeth has succeeded in creating a powerful air cushion directly under the conveyor belt in its new conveying system. This powerful air cushion makes it possible to raise the conveyor belt, along with the bulk goods it carries, and keep it airborne based on the same principle as that used by a hovercraft.

Only one conveyor roller, located in the drive, tensioning and belt return station, is needed to set the conveyor belt in motion. Poeth's new AirConveyor eliminates 95 percent of all moving parts in comparison to traditional belt conveyor systems. As a result, Poeth's AirConveyor generates far less friction.

This makes the air-supported conveying system 40 percent more energy-efficient and significantly reduces noise emissions (<80dbA). Fewer moving parts result in much less maintenance and negligible conveyor belt wear.

Fewer rotating parts also provide less heat and less risk of exposures. The AirConveyor is suitable for extreme circumstances and difficult to reach places. This also makes the new AirConveyor extremely reliable and cost-efficient.

Homogeneous, damage-free conveying over long distances
zThe new belt conveyor from Poeth is suitable for transporting raw materials in the feed, food, chemical and bulk industries. The AirConveyor is used to transport a wide variety of products such as salt, sugar, cereals, seeds, animal feed, biomass, coal, ore, sand and gravel. The advantage of belt conveyors is that they transport products without agitating them.

Consequently, the new AirConveyor from Poeth is ideally suitable for conveying fragile, explosive and sticky raw materials without risking separation. The new AirConveyor is capable of high-capacity transportation (3 m3/hour – 2000 m3/hour), both horizontally and vertically.


Poeth offers its AirConveyor as an enclosed, dust-tight system for both indoor and outdoor application. The AirConveyor is also available according ATEX and Food Grade guidelines (FDA, EC 1935/2004 and 3.1B material certificates).

Dr Ir. Arief Daryanto and Dr Erwidodo came as the speakers and moderated by Prof. Dr Ir. Muladno, MSA. Director of PT. Permata Kreasi Media, Fitri Nursanti Poernomo, said that ILDEX Indonesia 2017 is held by  various parties.

The third exhibition of ILDEX Indonesia is expected to improve the quality of livestock industry in Indonesia. Nino Gruettke, Managing Director of VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific, Co., Ltd. said that Asian countries that have rapid economic growth and monitored by global investors are Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, and upon those countries there is Indonesia. “That’s why we put our focus specifically in this country,” he explained.

Nino said that in addition to more international (this exhibition is followed by 250 leading companies from 27 countries plus pavilion from China and South Korea.), it will also feature three industrial zones, covering feeding and animal health; feed milling and agricultural equipment; and genetic, breeding, and processing.

“The number of exhibitors has increased by 22 percent from the previous edition and now 80 percent of booths are sold out. At this moment of ILDEX, several companies increased their exhibition area by 50 percent, as well as many new companies. Our target is to have 8,000 visitors present at this exhibition,” Nino said.

He explained that there are many benefits to be gained for the participants as well as visitors in this edition of ILDEX. This exhibition is not only offering the latest livestock innovations for the upstream to the downstream sector, but ILDEX Indonesia 2017 also offers great potential in terms of business. “Many international companies are joining, both new and those who have participated in the last edition,” he said.

Director General of Livestock and Animal Heatlh, I Ketut Diarmita, represented by Fadjar Sumping Tjatur Rasa, said in his welcome speech that he is glad to see ILDEX Indonesia 2017. Livestock sub-sectors still plays an important role for the development process in Indonesia, especially in rural areas. “Livestock contributes 1.62 percent to the national gross domestic product in 2016. In addition, the livestock sub-sector role in providing animal food consumption tends to increase,” he said.

Juan Permata Adoe, the Deputy Chairman of The Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN) Strategic Food Industry Sector, mentioned that increasing the productivity of farmers by 60 percent, will meet the domestic demand. Thus, it is very important to find solutions that can benefit all stakeholders.

“If domestic demand is met, Indonesia has a great potential to become a net exporter of agricultural products, supplying more than 130 million tons to global market. Therefore, the government needs to implement synergistic policies in order to generate sustainable growth and profitable income for all sectors, covering farmers, private sector, and government,” he explained.

Arief Daryanto, Economic Expert of the Livestock Industry from Business School of Bogor Agricultural University, said that there are six key factors to success in competing in the livestock sector.

1. The existence of an appropriate climate that makes the cost of cage management becomes cheaper.
2. Low labour cost.
3. The strong support of corn and local soybean production is abundant.
4. The existence of contract farming between core companies and plasma farmers (can use cooperative schemes).
5. The existence of large companies with good management, modern equipment, innovative and market driven (market driven)
6. The existence of a conducive investment climate.
