Test results: How bend types influence pneumatic conveying system performance

A conveying line bend is just one of several components you must select for a pneumatic conveying system, but the bend type you choose will have a strong effect on the system's performance. The bend should generate a low pressure drop to minimize the system's energy consumption, and the bend should also minimize particle degradation and wear on the bend walls. Read this article to see how results of a test program at the University of Greenwich and an equation for predicting pressure drop due to bends can help you select a bend for your conveying system.

In a pneumatic conveying system, a bend in the conveying line has two main effects.
