Know The Common Types Of Air Slide Fabric
Air slide fabrics are also known as aeration pads, aeroslides, fluidising fabric or air-permeable fabric. Though there are numerous manufacturers scattered all over India, learn more about the product and its application so that you can choose the right manufacturer. Generally, solid woven fabrics are used in air slides for transferring fine dry products. Let the manufacturer know that you want to transfer bulk material using air gravity, and they will provide some common types of air slide fabric. You don’t have to worry about the fabric material if the manufacturer uses high-quality polyester to make air slide fabric or air slide canvas.
Few Common Features Of High-Quality Air Slide Fabric
- No caking
- Decomposition and rot-resistant
- Can’t absorb moisture
- Low wear and durable
- Unload without any residue
- Low shrinkage rate even in humid and hot conditions
- Constant fluidisation over the complete surface
3 Common Types of Air Slide Fabric
Polyester-based air slide fabric is made using filament polyester. The material is used to make solid woven fabric and possess the characteristics stated below,
Resistant to high abrasion
It doesn’t warp or weft
Rot and decay-resistant
Heat scalable, which allows easy fitting
Continuous air permeability
High tensile strength
It doesn’t form fungus or bacteria
- Polyamide Based
The demand for nylon or polyamide-based air slide fabric is relatively high as it has numerous applications. When nylon is used to make solid woven fabric, it becomes air-permeable and you can use it to transfer bulk materials. Few common uses of polyamide or nylon-based air slide fabric are cement plant, dense phase systems, metallurgical industry, fixed cement tanks, chemical industry and bulk cement tank trucks.
- Cotton Based
Cotton is also used to make air slide fabric and has the characteristics stated below.
It can be used for moisture-free applications as the material can absorb humidity.
Used when transferring mild-abrasive or non-abrasive materials
Used in applications where you need self-cleansing fabric
