It is designed based on the hovercraft concept. The air-supported belt conveying equipment and other mechanical conveying equipment distributed by Pringles Ag-Plus are manufactured by F.A. Miller & Son's.

This concept of hovercraft is suitable to the full spectrum of material, from crushed stone to the finest food or mineral products. It functions at a rate of up to 3,000 tonnes per hour.

These air-supported belts can function at significantly steeper angles. The advantages of these air-supported belts conveying equipment includes a dust cover that enclose the belt without covering other moving parts and functions at a large unsupported spanning distance. The associated benefits are many, and the scope of usage is massive.
