What We Do Best
The pneumatic conveying systems that we design are done so using our inhouse developed software. We design lean phase (dilute phase) conveying systems and can be used to convey a broad range of dry powders, grains, pellets, flakes, cereals, etc. The lean phase design suspends the conveyed products within the airstream with very low material to air ratios and is a gentle form of conveying.
The conveying air for the pneumatic systems is provided by “Roots” type tri-lobe positive displacement blowers that can be used for positive pressure blowing up to 1 Bar or vacuum conveying up to -6oo millibar, these are generally used for the higher throughput systems. We also design systems using centrifugal suction fans for very low pressure/high air volume arrangements that are ideally suited to fragile cereal and flake conveying, and side channel exhausters/blowers for lower through put systems.
How it Works
Pneumatic conveying is a technology that uses compressed gas (air) to transport dry powdered materials through a conveying line from an entry point (silo, sack tip, big bag discharger) to a termination point (receiving vessel over a process point). The conveying line provides a closed environment for the powders being transported and uses vacuum or pressure to propel the material through the line. Pneumatic conveying is an efficient way to transfer powders, providing an adaptable design with easy to route conveying lines around corners, equipment, etc. and running horizontal and vertical, which is quite an advantage when routing a conveying line into an existing factory.
Pneumatic conveying systems provide an efficient method of moving materials around a process factory, the systems are very compact and have very few moving parts and a very simple to maintain and simple to keep clean.
