Expert pneumatic conveyor manufacturers typically combine off-the-shelf components, such as material receivers, to design custom or semi-custom systems that integrate seamlessly into a customer’s process.
Aero mechanical conveyors, like this Aerocon system, are regularly used as an alternative to pneumatic conveying.
Aero mechanical conveyors are ideal for applications where high-speed transfer of materials is necessary to equipment without suitable headroom to accommodate pneumatic receivers.
Pneumatic conveying is the most hygienic conveying method for bulk dry powders and granular bulk materials because it is a fully enclosed system that protects materials from air, dirt and waste; and in turn, facilities from fugitive dust.
Pneumatic conveying systems includes a programmable logic controller (PLC), or programmable relay, that handles complex information, dictating the sequence of events to occur, and can provide customers the ability to download data for evaluation.
