System moves materials at a low product velocity

Dense phase pneumatic conveying is a method for moving difficult, abrasive, mixed batch, or friable materials at a low product velocity. This system incorporates low gas volume at high pressure, conveying materials through an enclosed pipe in slug form at a controlled product velocity. It conveys one of two ways: pressure or vacuum. This type of system is favored for its low operating costs, basic maintenance, reduced material segregation and degradation, and minimal system wear. This method is typically selected for moving material from a single collection point to either single or multiple destination points. Common materials suitable for dense phase conveying include sand, cement, mixed batch, chemicals, limestone, pet food, and others.
