  • Multijector Vacuum Conveyors

    February 5, 2013

    Volkmann offers a conveying system optimizing material flow from the supply side to the downstream packaging operation. When used with a level-controlled buffer hopper, Multijector vacuum conveyors can transfer from as little as 10 lb/hr to 6 tn/hr, over distances up to 200 ft, all in dust-free,...

  • Power Considerations of Pneumatic Convey Systems

    February 5, 2013

    Significant research has been conducted in regards to understanding the gas flows and pressures required to pneumatically convey materials. However the true power requirements to operate a pneumatic conveying system are less well defined. In this article, you will discover the results of a large-...

  • Pneumatic Conveying of Highly Caustic, Corrosive Material

    January 31, 2013

    This pneumatic conveying system, specially treated to transfer a highly corrosive, granular material, uses integrated automation to minimize human exposure to the material and to optimize process efficiency with the upstream bulk bag unloading system. To reduce wear, the pneumatic conveying system...

  • 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...
