The Coperion K-Tron pressure vessel is used in dense phase pneumatic conveying applications and suitable for premixed materials, materials with high bulk density and products that are highly abrasive, friable, or tend to segregate. The design of the dense phase pressure vessel is available in stainless steel construction. They employ high air pressure — above 15 psig — and low air volume as the motive force to convey powder or granular bulk solid materials through a pipeline at low velocity. It is also designed for high-capacity conveying rates and long distances in purged (clear line) and non-purged (full-line) systems. There are no moving parts besides the inlet and vent valves, so less wear occurs. Pressure vessel units come completely assembled to reduce installation cost, requiring only compressed air source and electrical power.
