What is a pneumatic conveying system?
Pneumatic conveyors are transporting systems that can move fine, dry material using pressure differentials and airflow. You can have a push system, pull system or a combined system. A pull system uses negative pressure and a push system used positive pressure. The differences between the dilute (lean) phase conveyor, Medium phase conveyor and dense phase conveyor are the way of conveying and the speed of conveying.
- Dense phase conveyor: 2-10 m/s - material is transported via tubes as a Wavelike slug-flow
- Medium phase conveyor: 10-20 m / s - material is gradually transported on the bottom half of the tubes.
- Dilute (Lean) phase conveyor: 15-30 m / s - material is suspended in the airflow
What material can be handled by a pneumatic transporter?
Since pneumatic transporters have fewer parts than other conventional conveying systems, they are great for handling small, dry, low bulk density products such as sugar, flour, coffee and basically all types of powder and other aggregates.
