The MaxiDense dense-phase pneumatic conveying system maximizes the time spent at the design pressure of the convey system, resulting in efficient conveying. First, the tank design has a fully fluidized bottom using Fullerator aeration elements that promote smooth flow of material from the vessel. Further, the upward flow, side discharge design assists in controlling material flow into the convey pipeline, working in conjunction with the other process controls of the system. The MaxiDense technology utilizes a staged bypass to allow small increments of air to enter the convey line downstream of the tanks. Using several valves, a larger portion of convey air is bypassed at the beginning of the convey cycle when material more readily exits the tank. As the tank empties, more air is routed to the tanks to aid in tank cleanout.
