Pneumatic conveying - industries

Transport pneumatique

Pneumatic conveying is nothing more than creating a pressure differential along a pipeline and moving a bulk material along with the air as the air moves towards the area of lower pressure. This can be done with a vacuum inducer, or with compressed air being injected into one end of, or along the pipeline.

The two most distinct categories of pneumatic conveying can be described as either low pressure (dilute phase) or high pressure (dense phase) systems.

There are numerous variations and combinations of vacuum, pressure, and vacuum/pressure conveying systems.
