Pneumatic Conveying Systems

Choosing the correct automated Pneumatic Conveying System is a challenging process. Automation gives you high efficiency, a dust-free closed system that is dependable and gentle, and optimizes the use of space. Based on the product characteristics, conveying distance, and space available the system best suited for your needs has to be identified.

Pneumatic conveying systems provide an ideal way to link manufacturing stages in the production process. The decades of experience of AZO, intensive research, and continuing refinement of systems, enables even fragile and abrasion-sensitive products to be conveyed without any risk of damage.

The Principle
  • A blower at the end of the system generates the required vacuum level
  • Very simple product entry
  • Dust-free environment as there is no excess pressure
  • Ideal for conveying from multiple feeding points to one delivery point
  • A blower at the beginning of the system generates the required pressure
  • Air locks or pressure vessels used for product entry
  • Simple product delivery
  • Ideal for conveying from one feeding point to multiple delivery points
  • Combination of vacuum and pressure.
  • Ideal for conveying from multiple feeding points to multiple delivery points

Conveying Systems

Vacuum Conveying System

The wide variation in product characteristics of the materials have resulted in the creation of the following types of conveying systems:
- Classical method of pneumatic conveying
- Conveying velocity above saltation point – all particles suspended
- Uniform distribution of product in the pipe
- Higher product charging for granular products possible
- Abrasion of product and pipe possible

- Dilute phase conveying in top half of pipe
- Product accumulation in bottom half of pipe
- Residual product in pipe
- Reduction of product velocity down to saltation point.
- More gentle than dilute-phase conveying

- 1/3 air volume, 3-fold pressure, same energy requirement
- Residual product in pipe
- Stepped line sizes often recommended for long distance applications
- Extremely gentle conveying
- Minimum abrasion of pipe

Terms of reference and conveyed products
- C/V = velocity ratio
- V = air velocity
- C = product velocity m/s
- Q S = solids mass flow
- R = solids loading = Q S / Q A
- Q A = air mass flow
