ASBC Desk is an application to simulate and configure Air Supported Belt Conveyors, allowing to check if the air supply system works reliably.

The inputs consist of a broad range of:

  • support shapes;
  • belt widths;
  • orifice dimensions and spacing;
  • fans curves;
  • pressure losses in the plenum, ducts and components;
  • material densities and conveying angles;
  • environmental conditions;
  • load asymmetries;

The outputs retrieve:

  • a summary of expected resistances, pressure and volume requirements;
  • air film thickness, to predict possibility of dry friction;
  • plenum pressure along conveyor length, to check if the required pressure is always achieved;
  • fans working points, to assert if the system is stable;
