Pneumatic Conveying

Pneumatic conveying systems provide a cost-effective way to move bulk materials of wide ranging densities. For example, pneumatic conveying systems have been very successful in food processing applications where powders and grains need to be transferred.

Gasho fabricates packages used in pneumatic conveying systems, using pressure or vacuum, and a range of horsepower. We will customize your package to your specific needs in both appearance and specialized accessories.

Advantages of Pneumatic Conveying

Conventional mechanical conveying systems can be impractical due to the amount of space they require. Pneumatic conveying systems offer far more flexibility due to the compact nature of the conveying pipe transfer line, which can be routed around existing equipment. Because it is enclosed, the design of the pneumatic conveying system protects conveyed material from external contaminants as well as dust emissions to the atmosphere. Other advantages include:

  • Ability to run vertically or horizontally over a long distance
  • With fewer moving parts they are easier and less expensive to maintain than mechanical conveyors
  • Ability to maintain a controlled atmosphere around the material
  • Minimized system wear from abrasive materials and damage to fragile materials
  • Take up less floor space so they are easier to locate
  • Can have multiple pick up and discharge points

While pneumatic conveying systems offer many benefits, it is important to note that materials with high bulk densities, larger particles, and sticky or wet materials may not be suitable for pneumatic conveying.

What to Consider When Assessing Your Application

As with any industrial application, it is important to evaluate the environmental conditions and materials involved with your conveying application. The following are things our team looks at when developing a pneumatic conveying system solution:

  • Particle size distribution and shape
  • Air Humidity
  • Moisture content
  • Angles of flow, slip, and repose
  • Density
  • Fluidisation
  • Hardness / Friability
  • Temperature
  • Concentration
  • System throughput
  • System distance
