There are few efficient and effective ways to transfer dry bulk materials, other than with a pneumatic conveying system. If you choose pneumatic conveying as your means of moving bulk material, there are a number of critical key questions to be answered—one primary question being: Which conveying phase is right for my material and my exact needs?
Cyclonaire understands that this can be a challenging question to answer without the assistance of an expert within the pneumatic conveying industry. That’s why we created a new eBook, Identify the Correct Phase for Your Pneumatic Conveying System: Dense, Semi-Dense or Dilute.
Our unique and informative eBook touches on a number of critical topics to consider when selecting the right conveying phase for your material. Below is an overview of what you can expect to read about in the document.
Overview of pneumatic conveyors, applications & industries served:
In this introductory section, we take a closer look at the basics such as:
- How pneumatic systems work
- Industries that use pneumatic conveying such as foundries, utilities, railroads and general manufacturing
- A look at all the diverse applications, for example fracking, ash handling, rocket fuel and many more
Three different pneumatic conveying phases:
As the title implies, this section takes a closer look at the three major pneumatic conveying phases: dense, semi-dense, and dilute. While this topic can be confusing, our experts do a great job of simplifying the subject matter and providing a thorough explanation, without losing any accuracy.
Identifying the correct phase for your materials & applications:
This section is at the heart of Cyclonaire’s eBook. We take you through a wide range of factors and considerations you need to review to ensure you select the right phase. Some of these factors include particle size and shape, abrasiveness, bulk density, level of toxicity, and melt point. We also discuss how your plant’s location and environment plays a role in your decision making process.
Testing & phase selection:
After our pneumatic conveying experts make you aware of all the factors and considerations that will go into your choice, it is time to deal with testing and your ultimate phase selection decision.
At Cyclonaire, we have a comprehensive knowledge of and experience in all aspects of pneumatic conveying technology. We utilize our state-of-the-art CycloTech Technology Demonstration and System Proving Facility to verify the conveying selection.In the end, the results provide complete assurance that the equipment you choose will handle the target rate, air usage, pressure, degradation requirements, and more.
