High-Capacity Dense-Phase, Gravity-Filled Pneumatic Conveyors

August 31, 2010
The gravity-loaded bottom-discharge dense-phase conveyors are ideal for moving powdered, granular, or pelletized friable and abrasive materials, according to the manufacturer. They are rated up to 100+ TPH and provide high material-to-air ratios and extremely low line velocities, resulting in smaller line sizes, lower air consumption, reduced dust collection, and lower capital investment and operating costs. Abrasive wear and particle degradation are also minimized. Programmable controls (PLCs) offer reduced supervision for automated operation.
