Determining which system and components will best meet your needs I

Building on the information in his first four series of columns, Paul E. Solt -- a private consultant with more than 41 years experience installing and troubleshooting pneumatic conveying systems -- presents a fifth series of columns on the general application of pneumatic conveying. In a separate section, Solt also answers your pneumatic conveying questions.

In this second column on the general application of pneumatic conveying, we'll look at additional points to consider in deciding which pneumatic conveying system is best for conveying a given material. Even when a particular conveying system seems like a logical choice for an application, it's important to study the material's characteristics and determine how they affect your system choice. As you read this column, it may be helpful to refer to the July 1991 and March 1995 "Pneumatic points to ponder..." columns for more information on conveying types and material characteristics.
