Conventional mechanical conveying runs in straight lines. It usually requires a motor and gearbox on each direction change. Dust can be caused by mechanical conveying which may be hazardous.
Pneumatic conveying allows material to be transferred using pressure. Bends, rises and straight can be included without the need for extra equipment. Added to that, a pneumatic conveyor is an enclosed system.
Pneumatic conveying consist of 4 distinct conveying types: Solid dense, discontinuous dense, continuous dense and dilute phase. Selecting the right pneumatic conveying system for your requirements is essential to a successful design. Filtrex have combined experience of over 30 years in pneumatic conveying. We are specialists in dilute phase pneumatic conveying but can tackle any of your pneumatic conveying problems.
Dilute phase conveying uses high volumes of air and velocity to suspend the material in the air-stream. It is also useful for removing the material from the area it is created as the negative pressure forms a vacuum at the inlet to the system. Dilute phase conveying systems are generally used on systems where dust or vapours are produced from a machine or process.
