Pneumatic Conveyors

Pneumatic conveyors are a type of material handling equipment that use air pressure to move goods and products through a pipeline or tubing system. They are often used in industries such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals to transport materials such as powders, granules, and pellets.

Pneumatic conveyors work by using a fan or blower to create a stream of air that carries the material through the pipeline. The material is then separated from the air stream using a separator, such as a cyclone or filter, and deposited at the destination point. The air is then filtered and recirculated back into the system.

Pneumatic conveyors can be configured in various ways to suit different applications. They can be designed to operate at different pressures, velocities, and flow rates, depending on the characteristics of the material being transported. They can also be equipped with different types of pipelines and components, such as valves, elbows, and diverter gates, to accommodate different layouts and production needs.

Pneumatic conveyors offer several advantages over other types of material handling equipment. They are well-suited for handling delicate and friable materials, as the gentle movement of the air stream helps to prevent breakage and degradation. They are also ideal for transporting materials over long distances and around obstacles, as they can be easily routed through complex layouts.
