A key feature of this dense phase conveying system is the exclusive air management system. By using a pressure control regulator, airflow control orifice, and bypass valve, total air flow to the system and product-to-air ratio (the combination of air flow and conveying rate) are automatically controlled at the vessel. When air flow and product-to-air ratio are not accurately controlled, boosters or trace air lines are required. Not only are they expensive to purchase and install, but will add air to the system. Added air creates higher energy requirements and increased line velocity.
