“ALTOMECH Pneumatic conveyor needs to be as clean an environment as possible, and there are benefits just in the sanitation. Components are subject to extreme wash down conditions, high-pressure water spray, and harsh chemicals, so we try to minimize the number of electronics we put into that environment,” he says. And electromechanical belt drives offer the potential to generate and trap debris.
Benefits of Pneumatic Conveying System
The pneumatic conveyor systems uses differential air pressure to efficiently move materials from one point to the other. Since air flows from high to low pressure, its application at one end of the pipe will move bulk materials to the other end. Pneumatic systems are classified as negative pressure system which uses a vacuum to pull materials or positive pressure devices that use compressors to push bulk materials. On application of pressure or vacuum, the solid particles become airborne and are thus transported.
Powder or particulate materials are easily moved using this method.
They are applied in moving construction materials such as cement and sand
Minerals such as alumina, lime, gypsum, salt, fluorspar
Powder handling equipments
Bag house dust collection systems and raw cement during manufacture in clinker
