HiWay aero-mechanical conveying systems are designed to handle a wide variety of powders and granular products. The system is a high speed cable and disc conveyor made up of two or more special housings connected by tubes and fitted with particular sprockets, which turn the rope passing it on to the conveying tube. The plastic discs fixed on the cable at regular intervals create discrete air pockets as they travel along the tube. Materials are conveyed with the minimum of degradation and separation, which is particular important with friable and fragile products.

The high linear speed imparted to the discs is such as to create air displacement with consequent material fluidisation, high-speed running and significant lower power consumption, which guarantee high efficiency and considerable throughputs.

Discharge of the material from the air steam is achieved by centrifugal action: the product passes out through a discharge end, while the air is recirculated down the return tube into the circuit.
The totally enclosed, dust-free handling environment, the wide variety of handled products with different specific weights and the highly adaptable capacity of the system to match existing plants make HiWay aeromechanical conveyors extremely efficient, reliable, ecological and highly versatile.


HiWay aero-mechanical conveying systems are manufactured from very high quality materials: corners are made of mild steel or 304 or 316 stainless steel, tubes and ropes are produced in galvanised mild steel or stainless steel, discs in polyurethane, nylon, estane etc.

The low power requirements (see table), the minimal maintenance, the simple assembly, the light design, the modular construction and the high performance of the system make HiWay highly adaptable to meet the most particular challenges.

HiWay Distribution Conveyors

These distribution conveyors have the same features as the aero-mechanical conveyors but work at reduced speed and materials are conveyed into the tubes by disc chain or cable.

Main versions of HiWay conveyors

Aero-Mechanical Conveyor (vertical)

The rational design guarantees a highly efficient and versatile system with angles of operation from 0° to 90°.


Aero-Mechanical Conveyor (horizontal/vertical)

The tubular construction – first section horizontal, second section vertical – is fitted with one or more inlets and with tubes arranged vertically or horizontally side by side.


Bidirectional Aero-Mechanical Conveyor (vertical)

This solution is designed for feeding two loading hoppers, simply inverting the drive unit rotation.


Distribution Conveyor (horizontal)

The TDN distribution conveyor is operated at slow rotating speed of the cable within the tube; it is fitted with multiple outlets and pneumatic or manual cut-off valves and has similar accessories to the aero-mechanical systems.

Main components of HiWay's systems

Vibrated inlet

Intake hopper with vibrating device.


Discharge corner

Example of discharge corner.


Mild steel corner

Example of standard mild steel corner.


Joint pipe

Connectors are used to connect the conveying tubes. Assembly is fast and they guarantee solidity to the tubular construction, a dust-free handling environment and ensure electrical continuity for the grounding.
