When it comes to dry bulk materials, companies want to use the safest and most cost-effective way to transport and unload their goods. There are two primary methods for accomplishing this critical task, pneumatic and mechanical conveyors. So, which one is the right method for you?
To help answer this question, we created a new eBook titled, The Advantages of Pneumatic Conveyors vs. Mechanical. The eBook discusses the differences between pneumatic and mechanical conveyors, and assesses how these two methods compare in a number of areas:
- Simple Routing: The design of pneumatic conveying systems has the ability to simplify the routing of bulk materials.
- A Cleaner Method: Pneumatic conveyors eliminate many opportunities for spillage that occur with mechanical conveyance systems. This means less lost product and safer working conditions
- Less Maintenance: Fewer moving parts means less maintenance for pneumatic conveyors
- Flexibility: Pneumatic conveying systems allow for design changes and upgrades that can be easily and quickly implemented.
- Enhanced Safety: Moving parts don’t just mean more maintenance, it also means more danger. So pneumatic conveyors not only offer safety but less noise, which improves workplace conditions
