Pneumatic tube systems
Pneumatic tube systems are not a new invention which got a second wind in the age of electronics. Pneumatic tube system is a system of transportation of not heavy loads by means of compressed air or by partial vacuum. Hermetically closed containers of small diameter (diameter varies depending on the size of load) move through a tube carrying the desired content from station to station. The field of application of the pneumatic tube is wide. The system allows transporting of paper - money, documents and free flowing or liquid substances. Because of this pneumatic tube system is used as in banks, large companies, major post offices or supermarkets, as well as in hospitals, where it is possible to use it to send medicines and even laboratory tests.
Company Aerocom is a leading manufacturer of pneumatic tube systems. The Company offers reliable solutions for any enterprise. The main advantage of the system is ,of course, the efficiency. The container with the desired load on the need immediately "flies" from one station to another, delivering, for example, patient’s history. Security is another important advantage of pneumatic tube. The transportation of money in supermarkets and banks to the depository and safes becomes operational and safe, as no one can interrupt the transmission of the capsule through the tube. The monitoring is applied to trace the loads transposition.
The system is equipped with a microprocessor, which register all the transportations of the containers and also keeps statistics of movement. The split-level access to the system provides assigns priority of the deliver. Empty capsules are carried back in automatic mode. The containers are lockable and can be fitted with microchips for radio frequency identification. The installation of the system is possible during the construction of the building and so on finished objects. Depending on the needs of the enterprise or office the system is mounted in the most convenient way: in the niches above the dropped ceiling or under the floor. The cost of installation of the system depends on the diameter and length of the tube (tube can reach a length of 1.5 km.).
