Dense-phase conveyor solves problem of adding dry chemicals to holding tanks

Conveying system replaces a venturi-based system that never worked right.

In this article on troubleshooting pneumatic conveying systems, we’ll concentrate on increasing system capacity. The first step in increasing capacity is to determine whether a conveying or feeding problem is limiting the system’s capacity.

If you increase the material feed-rate and too much pressure builds in the system—that is, the relief valve opens or the air mover overloads—conveying is the problem. If you increase the feed-rate and the capacity doesn’t increase, the feeding system is restricting the capacity. This article will explain how to troubleshoot conveying and feeding problems so that you can increase capacity.
