  • Pneumatic tube system - How does this work?

  • A pneumatic tube system consists of several main components:
    The blower produces pressure or vacuum. The material is transported in properly matching carriers. The selection of the target and the input of the filled carriers is made at the stations. For connecting all stations in a tube-network diverters are used. With these diverters it is possible to transfer a carrier in the network to - for example - station 14 and at station 75 it will be discharged from the tube-network. For all this to work correctly, highly integrated controllers are used.

    A solution for different applications
    The system's operations is quite simple. After choosing the carrier's destination, the carrier ist put into the sending station. At the receiving station, the carrier is automatically presented and can be removed from the system, and its contents put to use. The system is now available for its next transmission. An Aerocom pneumatic tube system provides you the most flexible, easy and efficient means of transferring needed materials and information throughout your facility.

    Why pneumatic tube systems?
    Because pneumatic tube system solves internal transport problems with a speed of 6 - 8 m/sec. That saves time, energy and allows your staff to concentrate on more important matters instead of running errands.

    What can be transported with pneumatic tube systems?
    You can transport almost everything with our pneumatic tube system: Items weighing anywhere from 1 gram to 28 kilograms up to 30 cm in diameter and up to 50 cm in length. In this category you can find a whole lot of things: E.g.: paper, coins, bank notes, blood samples, medicine, spare parts, documents, X-ray films, hot steel samples, milk, oil,...

    So you can be sure, that we are also able to transport your items.
  • Stations - An overview about send- and receive stations

    • Slide-Station

    • This station is basically used in the applications of Cash-Handling. As initial- or end station, Tube approaching from top.
    • Drive Through / End-Station (DS)

    • As semi-automatic through- or end station. (Arrival from above).
      The user inserts the carrier into the sending funnel below the station.
      The station decelerates the arriving carrier pneumatically and slides it automatically into a receiving basket.
    • Endstation after Diverter (EWS)

    • This station sends a stored carrier automatically to the desired destination. Carriers arrive gently on an air cushion and are deposited in a sound proofed receptacle.
    • Multi-Load-Station

    • The Multi load station is generally used only as a sending station for 3 carriers.
    • Universell Through or Endstation (COM)

    • Arrival from top or below. The COM-station transports a stored carrier fully automatic to the desired destination. Carriers arrive gently on a cushion of air and are deposited in a sound proofed receptacle.
    • Flap - Sending and Receiving (KSA)

    • The station is opened and closed automatically. The carrier is not removed from the station for loading and unloading. The carrier is transported automatically to it's destination.
    • Desk-Station

    • The station either serves arrival from top or from below. Suitable for installation in desks, tables or further furniture.  The Carrier can be inserted into a storage facility on top of the station. The Desk-station transports a stored carrier fully automatic to it's desired destination. An arriving carrier is automatically transport by an integrated lift to the desk level.

      Pneumatic-Tube-Systems in hospitals


      As in all industries, medical facilities face challenges. Staff shortages, the need to control cost, and the increasing size of the facilities, themselves, are just a few of those challenges. The result is an escalating reliance on technology to maintain and improve the level of service and patient care. Though pneumatic tube systems have been around for nearly a century, their sophistication and capabilities have improved dramatically in the last decade. So today, even more, a properly designed pneumatic tube system can be just the solution to a hospital’s growing challenges and need for improved efficiency.

      In addition to relieving vital staff members of the routine transport of lab samples and medications, pneumatic tube systems deliver these items in a fraction of the time. Perhaps even more important than increased efficiency is the fact that critical samples and medications reach their destination in seconds vs. minutes.

      No need to stop there! These improvements can be provided to all departments and personnel. The entire medical facility including central pharmacies, cafeterias, kitchens and administrative departments, labs and retail shops can all be networked together. Paperwork, records, and even cash can be more efficiently routed to their intended destinations.
    • Cash-Handling

    • Solutions for the internal cash transfer

      Increased safety:
      With a pneumatic tube system, no longer will employees be required to manually transfer of cash from point-of-purchase areas to the central cash office. The exposure and high risk associated with this task is eliminated as well. Pneumatic tube system stations installed in plain view are a pro-active deterrent to potential criminals as they recognize that their potential haul is likely not to be worth the risk.

      Improved efficiency:
      Regular and efficient removal of the cash helps to minimize the amount of cash maintained in each register. Scheduled ongoing removal of the cash from each register streamlines the count and balance procedures in the central cash office. Rather than deferring cash counting, balancing, and related procedure to the end of the day or shift, these processes can be conveniently spread throughout the day, resulting in considerably more efficient work flow. Labor cost for routing change requests, supplemental cash orders, deposits, and supply items can be a thing of the past through the use of an aerocom pneumatic cash handling system.
      Dependent upon the currency, the amount to be carried plus the application, we would select a diameter to suit your requirement ranging between 50 mm to 160 mm.
    • Pharmacies

    • Automated storage technology for pharmacies wit the pneumatic tube system

      The distance between the pharmaceutical storage area and the pharmacy counter is no problem with aerocom’s PharmaPost.  The pneumatic tube system instantly and automatically dispenses and transports remotely stored pharmaceuticals to sales counters and work stations.

      Maximize retail space and improve operating efficiency:
      Most pharmacies commit a large part of what should be profitable square footage to the storage of pharmaceuticals. The pneumatic tube system PharmaPost allows pharmacies to remotely locate pharmaceutical storage. Whether automated loading or manual, PharmaPost turns storage areas into valuable, revenue producing square footage.

      Increased security and control:
      Security is improved by moving high-risk medications out of areas directly accessible to the public. Though its access control, PharmaPost’s secure, locking auto-load module enhances internal control of restricted medications.
