Pneumatic Tube Systems for Quarries & Gatehouses

Air Tube Systems for Gatehouses & Quarries

HGV loading operations or deliveries to and from sites supplying raw materials may pose several risks to both the HGV driver and the gatehouse security when exchanging the order documents or delivery notes.

Heavy goods vehicles traffic to and from quarries, concrete depots, and cement or aggregate bulk suppliers will usually have to stop at the gatehouse to submit the load order documents or delivery notes. During peak periods queues can quickly form, and some drivers may even not want to switch off their engines and leave their vehicles to walk over to the security office.

This is where Aerocom come in to ease the operations and streamline the traffic flow with document delivery systems.


Reducing Hazards With A Gatehouse Pneumatic Tube System


There are many hazards and associated risks which can be eliminated by simply installing air tube systems for quarries, such as:

The driver must stop the engine when leaving the vehicle
The driver or security may have to cross multiple access roads
The road surface may be muddy and slippery
There may be overhead loading activities
Traffic flow and delivery/pickup turnover may be slowed down

With a basic intercom and weatherproof air tube stations conveniently mounted at optimum access to the driver’s window, communications and document exchanges are made in seconds using pneumatic tube systems.

Depending on the distance and local requirement or building arrangements we have a choice of:

  • Various tube diameters from Ø63mm, Ø90mm, Ø110mm, or Ø160mm
  • Tube can be routed internally, externally or even underground
  • A choice of stations, intercoms, carriers and accessories
  • Blowers can be single-phase or 3-phase in various volume capacities
  • Control systems range from simple to sophisticated
