Four Basic Details to Consider with Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying

Dense phase pneumatic conveying offers many advantages for bulk material handling. It is typically, the first choice for moving abrasive materials, and has been used successfully to convey all kinds of agglomerated, friable, heavy, or blended bulk materials. However, to experience these advantages, many aspects of conveying system design need to be considered. The details can make or break a successful system installation.

Common Differences Between Dense Phase Pressure Conveying and Dense Phase Vacuum Conveying

Dense phase pneumatic conveying is a method for moving difficult, abrasive, mixed batch, or friable materials at a low speed. The materials move along an enclosed pipe, in slug form using small amounts of gas at a low velocity and high pressure. This article introduces the two most common types of dense phase conveying – pressure and vacuum.

Common Differences Between Dilute Phase Pressure Conveying and Dilute Phase Vacuum Conveying

Dilute phase pneumatic conveying is a method of moving non-abrasive, non-fragile materials that have a low bulk density. The materials move along an enclosed pipe, in slug form using small amounts of gas at a high velocity and low pressure. This article introduces the two most common types of dilute phase conveying – pressure and vacuum.
