Pneumatic Conveying

  • Dense Flow Dense-Phase Pneumatic Conveying System

    February 5, 2013

    The Dense Flow System differs from many of its competitors with the absence of air boosters along the pipeline. The system is able to achieve equal or greater results in many instances without the use of boosters. Some of the advantages to not having boosters are lower air consumption, lower...

  • Dense-Phase Pneumatic Conveyors

    January 29, 2013

    Vacuum and pressure dense-phase systems are best suited for conveying materials when degradation and segregation are unacceptable. They use low-volume, high-pressure air to convey at low velocity, ensuring minimal powder damage. Gas booster points can be used along the conveying line to control...
