Size Reduction for Pneumatic Conveying

August 3, 2012

Single- and dual-rotor crushers have been successfully applied to compliment pneumatic conveying and bulk handling system installations in the dairy, food, chemical, pharmaceutical, and agricultural industries. Many times an application’s product characteristics or process can change, producing lumps that are larger than the original material. If these lumps are not pre-conditioned through size reduction equipment like a crusher, these lumps can drop out of the air stream, build up, and clog the horizontal conveying lines. The proper selection of the size reduction equipment to pre-condition the material prior to the pneumatic conveying system will insure that you will not have any problems with your conveying performance caused by plugged conveying lines.
