PNEUMATIC TRANSPORT SYSTEMS
Dilute Phase Pneumatic Transport Systems
Dilute phase pneumatic transport systems are systems in which powder and granular materials are carried with low pressure but high flow rated air.The system usually operates on positive pressure and generally positive displacement blower is used as air source.
Ventury is used for material feeding element too, after blower. Differently from normal rotary feeder, the air coming from the blower passes through the unit, meets with the material and transferred to the transport line. For very abrasive materials, basalt with special alloy or double-membrane bends is used in pipeline.
This transport system is useful in many areas thanks to their high transport velocities.
Dilute phase pneumatic systems are appropriate for the transportation of;
- Non-fragile and
- Low density materials
