Wear should be considered when a pneumatic conveying system is being designed, but it’s often overlooked since a fitting designed for long wear may not always be the most efficient system choice. The wear-extending options discussed in this article will add cost to a standard elbow, valve, or gate valve, but they also can help increase the lifespan of your fittings.
Reducing wear in pneumatic conveying system components
Wear can be a problem in any pneumatic conveying system, especially when conveying abrasive materials or operating at high velocities. This article discusses ways you can limit elbow and other fitting wear in your system.
