In principle, the conveying of bulk materials in the production process can now be automated in virtually all instances. A variety of pneumatic conveying solutions is now available for use according to the respective bulk material, the nature of the task and the available space.
In principle, pneumatic conveying systems are differentiated in pressure and vacuum mode. A combination of these both systems is also possible.
Vacuum conveying systems
Vacuum pneumatic conveying systems are best employed where the product is to be conveyed from several feeding points to one delivery point. Product channelling is extremely simple and dust-free since there is no excess pressure
Pressure conveying systems
Pressure conveying systems are best employed where the product is to be conveyed from one feeding point to several delivery points over long distances. Since the product has to be conveyed against the air pressure, locks or pressure vessels are required. Product delivery is under atmospheric pressure and however simpler.
Vacuum pressure conveying systems
Conveying systems combining suction and pressure are best used where the product is to be conveyed from several feeding points to several delivery points.
