Kings Lynn, UK-Martis Engineering Ltd has become exclusive UK distributor in for Air-Tec Systems srl of Bologna, Italy and the two firms have launched Air-Tec's range of pneumatic conveyors in the UK.
Martis describes the Air-Tec products as suitable for conveying granular or powdered products during manufacture and packaging of rubber or plastics products, and describes the equipment as "highly cost effective."
Air-Tec's engineers have designed the equipment to convey materials "in the dense phase at a controlled velocity," said Martis. This means less equipment is needed than with conventional systems, the firm claims.
"Fragile and abrsive materials can also be conveyed with minimal product and system damage or degradation," Martis says, resulting in lower costs for installation, operation and maintenance.
Kings Lynn based Martis, set up in 1977, makes a range of process equipment for materials handling in various industries, and offers full plant design, installation and commission.
