Get the pneumatic tube feeling.


Sound recording of a pneumatic tube diverter changing position

An electric motor turns the pipe in the diverter to another output. This way a carrier can exchange tubes.


The sound of a carrier exchanging tubes through a diverter

At first you hear the diverter turn to the correct tube, the blower starts sucking the carrier towards the diverter.
The carrier passes the diverter and the blower stops for a moment.
The diverter turns to another tube and the blower blows the carrier into that pipe of the transfer zone.
In the end the pipe in the diverter turns back to its original position.
