Designing and using pneumatic conveyors
A pneumatic conveyor that operates successfully in one application won't necessarily operate successfully in another. This article can help you gather the information you need to design and use a pneumatic conveyor that works successfully in your application. It describes what you need to know about the conveyed material's characteristics and the conveyor's purpose and operating conditions.
Designing and using a pneumatic conveyor can be fraught with pitfalls, because no formula for designing a pneumatic conveyor will work for every application. Too many variables exist, ranging from the conveyed material's density and particle size to the number of pipeline bends the conveyor will have. To allow for variables like these and avoid costly mistakes, it's wise to rely on the experience of others.
