Pneumatic conveying systems are a highly efficient and cost-effective way to transport bulk material, such as sand or gravel. They consist of a large storage bin that is connected to a blast gate at one end.
What is it?
A pneumatic system consists of an air compressor, piping, valves and slats on the floor for high-velocity air flow. The blast gate directs the material towards the piping where it enters the pipe system where it will be transported via compressed air to its final destination.
How is it done?
Pneumatic conveying systems use compressed air to push materials through pipelines, tubes and other structures. The system may be used as a conveyor belt or as an industrial vacuum cleaner for removing dirt from surfaces like floors and walls.
These pneumatic systems also often include filters that remove dust particles from the airflow before they enter the machine’s intake valve. This means fewer parts will need to be replaced over time because of accumulated dust buildup on certain components.
What all does it do?
- Pneumatic conveying system help to cut down the amount of physical labor needed for transportation, reduces material loss and can be easily integrated with an automated control system that allows operators to monitor the movement of each batch.
- These things make it a popular choice for industrial operations around Australia because they are highly efficient ways to transport bulk materials without creating any harmful emissions or dust clouds as is often seen with pneumatic belt conveyors. Also they are beneficial and highly functional.
- And because they’re highly efficient ways to transport bulk materials without creating any harmful emissions or dust clouds operators can monitor each batch easily using an automated control system which makes them easy to integrate into most existing operations, too making them a great option for companies who want reliable and cost- transportation methods at their disposal.
Over time these batches are moved through different conveyors depending on their location within your facility which reduces travel distance between floors so you don’t have to move materials as often—reducing costs over time. It may be a problem if using it in a wrong way. Look out for the proper instructions to use it.
These highly efficient machines are used regularly by industries with heavy loads of work. Its not a common site. Yet it is equally important to choose the correct one for your industrial needs.
