The dense phase pneumatic conveying systems are suitable to transport big quantities of powders and granules (even dozens of tons per hour) with low conveying speed, from few meters up to very large distances (> 100 m).
The DENSE PHASE is the best technology to convey fragile or very abrasive materials, as the low transport speed make it possible to preserve their integrity and avoid the wear of the systems.
All our conveyors can be made of:
- painted carbon steel
- stainless steel AISI 304
- stainless steel AISI316
Available with certification PED or ASME
and with components ATEX zone 21 or 22.
What are the advantages?
- ENERGY SAVING
Low and non-continuous air consumption, no electrical motors always turned on.
- MORE EFFICIENT
Very high ratio of product conveyed/air used.
- LESS MAINTENANCE
Less wearing of the piping and the moving parts.
- LOW CONVEYING SPEED
Usually between 2-10 m/s, allows to preserve the integrity of the product, minimizing changes in bulk density and particle size distribution.
- PRESERVES THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PRODUCT
Using compressed airdried and with allow temperature allows to do not change the characteristics of the product. The use of a little quantity of air reduces the oxidation of the product. Moreover, the dense phase conveying limits the segregation effects onto mixed products along the pipe routing.
- NO PROBLEM IN CASE OF FORCED INTERRUPTION
While in traditional installations a forced interruption of transport results in the dismantling of the line which must be emptied to restart it, the dense phase can be interrupted and resumed at any time without any need for extraordinary intervention.
