Title
(EN) DIVERTER FOR BOTTLE AIR CONVEYOR
(FR) PARTITEUR POUR CONVOYEUR A AIR DE BOUTEILLES
Abstract
(EN)
An air conveyor system conveying a stream of bottles comprises one input air conveyor (10), two output air conveyors (12, 14), and a laterally slidable diverter (16) to selectively connect the input conveyor (10) to one of the output conveyors (12, 14). Each conveyor (10, 12, 14) comprises a pair of flanges (54, 56) coated with a polymeric surface for slidably supporting the neck rings of the bottles, and a plurality of nozzles spaced along the flanges. Each nozzle has a first opening (38, 40) below the respective flange for directing a jet of conveying air against the bottles and a second vacuum opening (50, 52) above the respective flange for drawing air above the bottles to further reduce the sliding friction. The input conveyor (10) includes two pairs of variable-speed belt conveyors (106, 108; 118, 120) at the end thereof to produce a desired spacing of the bottles downstream therefrom. The belts (108, 118) are adjustable horizontally for different shaped bottles by being positionable about different sized, vertically spaced pulleys (106, 120).
(FR)
Système de convoyage à air assurant l'acheminement de bouteilles. Ce système comprend un convoyeur (10) à air d'entrée, deux convoyeurs à air (12, 14) de sortie et un partiteur (16) coulissant latéralement de manière à raccorder sélectivement le convoyeur d'entrée (10) à l'un des deux convoyeurs de sortie (12, 14). Chaque convoyeur (10, 12, 14) comporte deux rebords (54, 56) revêtus d'une surface polymère assurant le maintien des bouteilles par leur frette tout en autorisant leur coulissement, et une série de buses disposées le long de ces rebords. Chaque buse comporte une première ouverture (38, 40) au-dessous du rebord correspondant, de manière à diriger un jet d'air de transport contre les bouteilles, et une seconde ouverture (50, 52) à dépression, située au-dessus du rebord correspondant, de manière à aspirer l'air au-dessus des bouteilles afin de réduire la friction inhérente au coulissement. Le convoyeur d'admission (10) comporte deux paires de tapis roulants à vitesse variable (106, 108; 118, 120) à son extrémité, de manière à produire l'espacement souhaité entre les bouteilles en aval. Les tapis roulants (108, 118) s'ajustent en hauteur, en fonction des différentes formes de bouteilles, par un positionnement effectué par des poulies de tailles différentes, espacées les unes des autres dans le sens vertical (106, 120).
