Lunar Conveying System

Photo illustrates a prototype lunar soil/oxygen processing system. Location is a remote Pacific volcanic crater which best replicates conditions found on the lunar surface of the moon.

The twin AFC screw feeders were designed to operate and deliver lunar soil to the oxygen processing system at a controlled rate of feed under the extreme variables of both temperature and zero atmosphere.

The proprietary design twin lift screw feeders by Automated Flexible Conveyor Inc. were provided as part of this system to ASRC Aerospace, Kennedy Space Center, a leader in the support, design and development of new technology for the future of America’s Aerospace programs.
