Industries know the value of pneumatic conveying equipment for moving large amounts of materials from one location to another. Specially designed pneumatic conveying systems can hold a stream of air and a mixture of solid bulk mass. According to the mode of transportation, a pneumatic conveyor can be divided into two main categories: dense phase systems (pressure and vacuum) or dilute phase structures (Pressure and Vacuum).
What is pneumatic conveying equipment?
To put it simply, pneumatic conveying is a system that moves dry bulk materials (powders and granules) from one production line to another using pressure differential and gas flow (typically air). The main idea behind pneumatic conveying is to move bulk goods by air via enclosed pipelines. A compressor, fan, or root blower is typically used to create air movement.
Depending on the product’s features, particle size, throughput, the number of sources, and destinations, pneumatic conveyors are inherently specialized conveying systems.
The foundation of pneumatic conveying is the capability of air to move bulk materials through pipelines. The flowing conveying air propels the bulk material through the conveying line, which also transfers a propulsion force to it. There must always be a pressure gradient between the pipeline’s beginning and ending for pneumatic conveying. Conveying blowers or compressors are utilized to compensate for this pressure difference.
A sound investment for industries.
Various industries use pneumatic conveying equipment to move materials from one place to another. A well-designed system can increase productivity while ensuring worker safety. Depending on your process, you might need a system capable of handling huge quantities or one that is precise.
The length, layout, or isometry of the conveying line and the presence of the solid matrix in the conveying line, or loading, affect the height of the change in pressure that must be applied. One can distinguish the loading in the lean phase, strand phase, and dense phase conveying of the pneumatic conveying techniques. Suction and pressure conveying systems and combined suction and pressure conveying systems are typically distinguished.
In the past, grain discharge from international ships led to the development of the first pressurized conveyor systems. Later, other process engineering disciplines adopted these new advanced technologies of continuous development.
Pneumatic conveying equipment has several advantages. They are safe, adaptable, and have a lot of flexibility in terms of construction. They are also easy to maintain and are very easy to clean and sanitize, making them a good choice for industries.
