Like all Hovair Systems products, aluminum load moving transporter pallets (aka air pallets) offer a flexible and easy way for moving your regular shaped loads by harnessing the power and energy of simple compressed air. An alternative to multiple module systems, these transporters are the perfect solution to moving heavy loads with fixed widths and lengths.

Aluminum transporter pallets are available in a variety of sizes starting around 4ft x 3ft. We can also custom build a transporter to suit your needs and specifications. Be sure to ask your Hovair support contact for details.

The choice of air bearing fitted to your transporter will, of course, depend on the type of load you are looking to move and its weight. A standard 4ft x 3ft model will contain 4 A-type air bearings with a combined lifting capacity of 4000 (2 tons). As the size of the transporter increases, so does the air bearing weight capacity, as well as the number of air bearings.

Air flow control is via a manifold at one end on the transporter. This manifold incorporates air flow control valves for each air bearing, as well as an On/Off ball valve that connects to the air supply source.

Air bearing replacement is a simple process and requires the removal of 1 hex-head bolt for A-type air bearings and 5 bolts for the B-type air bearings.

Push handle is optional.

Air Bearings and Caster Modules: The hub of our pneumatic powered load moving systems is the effective use of air bearings and caster modules as heavy machinery moving equipment. All Hovair Systems air caster modules are strong enough to support the weight of the loads their air bearings are designed to lift and move.


Air Beams|Lift Decks|Moving Handling Equipment

Lift Deck Beams Sets are able to move under a load (similar to a pallet truck) that is set on a low-profile pallet, then lift the pallet off the floor using the air lifter facility in the upper beam decks. However, by having a lift-deck incorporated into the structure, you can engage a heavy load and lift it clear of its base before moving it away.
