MINI-MARK II AIR-LIFT SYSTEM

air lift system
Like our standard Mark II, the Mini-Mark II Airlift
System is a durable and reliable pressure/vacuum system
that requires power only at one end of the system. The
Mini-Mark II System moves carriers in one direction
using pressure and with vacuum power on return to
provide a highly dependable “push-pull” operation. The
smaller Mark II System is ideal for a wide range of
industrial, retail and commercial applications, requiring
only minimal counter space. The installation of inter-
mediate stations provides the capability to expand your
system for even greater flexibility.

Pneumatic Dispatch
Perfect For Warehouses, Transportation, Industry...
If you're wasting money moving things in your business, then you should look into the Economical, Fast, Reliable
Dispatch Systems.
Airlift systems completely eliminate the need for messengers in most operations... Eliminate their wages, benefit
packages, coffee breaks, and time taken from more productive work... and deliver the goods ten times faster!

Dispatch systems are compact and high-capacity, providing two-way carrier travel in a single tube.
Installation is so easy, your own employees can set it up in less than a DAY! No complicated power wiring.
Just plug the system into an existing wall outlet and start using.
No other pneumatic tube system can deliver paperwork, parts or samples from one location to another with
the ease, speed, low cost and safety of a Dispatch System.
Low-cost, automatic, instantaneous dispatch system designed to convey materials between two similar
Send/Receive Stations through a single connection tube.
AIRLIFT Pneumatic Systems can deliver anything that fits in an AIRLIFT Carrier to any remote location - even
on different floors or in other buildings - in a few seconds. Small parts, orders, invoices, credit cards, shipping
papers, memos, currency, mail, laboratory or test samples, medical supplies, or any other load weighing up to
5 lbs., are whisked at speeds up to 25 feet per second on a jet-stream of low-pressure air to a destination up to
2,000 feet away. Our flexible systems deliver upward, downward, or in any direction, not just horizontally. And
they are energy-efficient; the blower operates only when a Carrier is in transit, not 24 hours a day as many other
systems do. Unlike old-fashioned, bulky, twin-tube vacuum systems consisting of heavy steel tubing and low-
capacity carriers plus expensive three-phase turbo-compressors requiring additional complex controls, the
AIRLIFT Pneumatic Systems are compact and high-capacity, providing two-way carrier travel in a single
tube
. Conveying tubing and bends are made from either strong, lightweight, non-corroding, dent-resistant PVC
or optional steel, with diameters of 3 in., 4 in., or 6 in. And our unitized Send/Receive Stations with built-in turbo
blowers can sit on desks or tables, or mount easily in a minimum of space on walls, building columns, or any
convenient flat surface, without using prime plant floor space. Installation is so easy, your own employees can set
it up in less than a day! No complicated power wiring. Just Plug the system into an existing wall outlet.
AIRLIFT Carriers are made from durable, high-density polyethylene for excellent wear in system-compatible
diameters of 3 in., 4 in., and 6 in., and standard lengths of 10 in., 12 in., and 14 in. Their smooth surfaces and aero-
dynamic design generate minimal friction, permitting dramatic increases in system capacity and length.
Thousands of pneumatic tube system users are proving the cost efficiency of AIRLIFT Pneumatic Systems in such
diverse installations as:

Quality Control Labs
Factories
Transportation Terminals
Ware Houses
Banks
Hospitals
Auction Houses
Auto Dealers
Brokerage Firms
Railroads
Restaurants
Motels & Hotel
s
or anyplace requiring an immediate flow of items at the lowest possible cost. AIRLIFT Pneumatic Systems com-
pletely eliminate the need for messengers in most operations... eliminate their wages, benefit packages, coffee breaks,
and time taken from more productive work...and deliver the goods ten times as fast!
If you're wasting money moving things in your business, then you should look into economical, fast, reliable, safe,
and clean AIRLIFT Pneumatic Systems. No other pneumatic tube system can deliver papers, parts, or samples
from one location to another with the ease, speed, low cost, and safety of an AIRLIFT system.
Basic AIRLIFT System transfers items between two similar Send/Receive Stations through a single interconnecting
tube.
For installations where limited space or building obstructions won't permit standard 48-in. radius bends, 24-in. radius
expanded bends are available that allow the free travel of Carriers without binding. Expanded bends can be used for
upward, downward, or horizontal runs.
Two configurations of Send/Receive Stations are available for use in the pressure/pressure AIRLIFT systems,
depending on the user's station mounting requirements. The Type I Stations suits narrow and taller mounting spaces,
whereas the Type II Station fits wider and shorter mounting locations. Both Stations are fabricated from 16-gauge
cold rolled steel with an enamel finish. Station doors are manufactured from heavy steel.

Engineering Excellence
Mark II AIRLIFT is a super reliable pressure/vacuum system requiring power only at one end of the system in a
Send/Receive station called the "Power Pedestal" that can be located at either end of the system. The Power Pedestal
moves Carriers under pressure in one direction and under vacuum on the return in a "push-pull" system operation.
This design allows the installation of intermediate Stations for greater system usage and flexibility.
The special features of the Mark II System which is also designed for 3-in., 4-in., or 6-in. diameter AIRLIFT
include:
Electrical power required only at one end of the system
Send /Receive Station at non-powered end makes no noise whatsoever
One or more intermediate stations that expand system usage

3" AIRLIFT CARRIERS

For loads up to 1 lb. and distances to 1,000 feet. Provides 2-1/4" useful diameter
by 10" or 12" length - 26% more volume than ordinary carriers.
4" AIRLIFT CARRIERS
For loads up to 3 lbs. and distances to 2,000 feet. Provides 3-1/4" useful diameter
by 12" or 14" length - 40% more volume than ordinary carriers.
6" AIRLIFT CARRIERS
For loads up to 5 lbs. And distances to 1,000 feet. Provides 4-3/8" useful diameter
by 12" or 16" length - more capacity at 1/3 the weight of ordinary carriers.

The user simply loads a Carrier and places it in the send/receive compartment. After closing the door, the push of a
button dispatches the Carrier immediately to its destination, simultaneously locking the door of the receiving Station
at the other end until the air flow stops just before the Carrier arrives. At the same time, red and white lights illuminate
on the receiving Station to indicate that a Carrier is in transit. When the Carrier arrives at the receiving Station, the red
signal light is extinguished to indicate the Carrier's arrival. The white signal light remains ON until the receiving Station
door is opened.
Rugged high density plastic construction assures long life for AIRLIFT Carriers. Smooth surfaces and aerodynamic
design, combined with the polished inner surfaces of extruded PVC tubing, generate minimal friction for more system
capacity and greater length than other pneumatic tube systems commercially available.

All of these safety and control features are standard and built into AIRLIFT Pneumatic Systems, not added at extra
cost. Exclusive electro-mechanical Safety Door Locks prevent access to the send/receive compartments while
a Station is in process of receiving a Carrier. Fully automatic. No user action required
Red signal light on receiving Station indicates system is in use; automatically extinguished when Carrier arrives at
receiving Station.
White signal light indicates Carrier arrival in Station; automatically extinguished upon removal of Carrier from com-
partment

Your own maintenance crew or local tradesmen can install an AIRLIFT Pneumatic System in a minimum amount of
time in new or existing buildings using all factory-supplied components.
Many AIRLIFT Pneumatic Systems are used to transport samples of all types between manufacturing operations and
a quality control or test site.
Underground installation of the tubing is highly desirable in these applications, because the tubing is protected from the
elements, from wide swings in temperature, and from accidental damage. Utilizes heavy-wall PVC tubing and
bends for underground installation.
A unique option available on the AIRLIFT Pneumatic Systems is Variable-Volume Speed Control. Excellence has
developed this entirely new concept in point-to-point pneumatic tube systems, that of using variable air volume to:
Control Carrier Speed
Reduce the force of Carrier impact upon arrival
Reduce the noise of Carrier Impact
Produce a smooth, non-turbulent, jolt-free transmission of the Carrier's cargo.
Variable-Volume systems produce a smooth, gentle Carrier ride on a cushion of air and a pillow-soft landing on the
arrival pad!
The keys to this innovation in pneumatic tube systems are two adjustable timers. A pneumatic tube system requires the
most air pressure to lift the Carrier out of the Station and through its initial vertical rise. But, once the Carrier is level,
the system's power requirements drop significantly to just enough pressure to overcome any friction between the
Carrier and the tubing walls.
Variable-Volume Carrier Speed Controls are standard in 6-in. systems, and available at nominal cost in 3-in. and 4-in.
systems
Another design for carrier slowdown is a relief valve, triggered by air pressure, that controls the Carrier as it reaches
the point of final decent into the terminal Station. This valve vents system pressure and allows the Carrier to fall
unpowered into the Station. To counteract the pull of gravity, a second valve simultaneously builds up back pressure
to cushion the Carrier's fall to a soft and gentle landing on the arrival pad. The total result is a cargo that rides smoothly
and arrives unshaken
In addition to the standard sound-absorbing special gaskets and foam Carrier arrival pads used in all AIRLIFT
Send/Receive Stations to dampen noise-producing vibration and Carrier impact shock, offers the user a choice of
different options that can greatly eliminate the blower noise inherent in pneumatic tube systems:
A remote blower that restricts all blower noise to a location where sound is not objectionable
For installations where condensation of moisture particles in the air flow can cause a problem, an outside air intake
can be incorporated into an AIRLIFT Pneumatic System to provide a moisture-free atmosphere
Telescoping expansion joints for long, straight runs in variable-temperature conditions.
Fire dampers - guillotine type - when tubing must penetrate fire walls or floors.
