Pneumatic Conveying

  • 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...

  • Patent Granted on ECOPhase Pneumatic Conveying Technology

    January 28, 2013

    Kansas City, KS-based Magnum Systems Inc., the parent of Smoot Co., was issued US Patent #8,337,122 for the “Continuous Semi-Dense Pneumatic Conveying and Method”. Smoot Co. intends to market this patented technology under the term “ECOPhase”. This form of conveying...

  • Series D Diverter Valves

    January 25, 2013

    Lorenz manufactures Diverter Valves for vacuum and dilute phase conveying systems, including 2-way, 3-way, and 4-way diverters that are available in sizes from 2 to 8 in. in a variety of configurations.

    Nol-Tec custom designs and installs dry bulk material handling systems that ensure your materials are conveyed efficiently and effectively, in a manner precisely suited to meet your goals. Capabilities and proprietary product offerings include dense- and dilute-phase pneumatic conveying –...

  • ConTran Continuous Dense-Phase Transfer

    January 15, 2013

    ConTran is an evolution in continuous dense phase conveying of dry bulk materials that accurately maintains material-air mass flow ratios at constant levels, resulting in stable, low-velocity, 'wave-form', continuous dense-phase conveying. ConTran reduces product degradation/segregation,...

  • The Way Forward for Pneumatic Conveying

    January 14, 2013

    Is pneumatic conveying in the doldrums or is it just taking time to consolidate its position? The final three decades of the last century saw a considerable amount of competition between companies through invention and development. A major innovation was that of low-velocity, dense-phase conveying...

  • VacuumPlus Dense-Phase Conveying System

    January 11, 2013

    The AZO VacuumPlus dense-phase conveying system combines the advantages of pressure and vacuum systems. It is ideal for applications where fragile and/or temperature-sensitive bulk materials need to be gently conveyed without segregation – particularly applications with medium throughputs and...
