How a pressure system can be used for either dilute- or dense-phase
Building on the information in his first four series of columns, Paul E. Solt, a private consultant with more than 43 years experience installing and troubleshooting pneumatic conveying systems, presents a fifth series, on the general application of pneumatic conveying.
In this seventh column on the general application of pneumatic conveying, we'll apply information from previous columns to understanding how a pressure conveying system can be used for either a dilute- or dense-phase conveying application. A pressure conveying system uses a pressure tank [also called a pressure pot or blow tank] to introduce material into the conveying line. As you read this month's column, it will be helpful to review information in previous columns.
