How Do Pneumatic Conveying Systems Work?

Pneumatic Conveying typically refers to the movement of dry powders or pellets from point A to point B in a pipe or tube by means of a difference in pressure. It is an efficient way to move dry bulk materials, and can help improve production rates in many applications.

Pneumatic conveying systems are vital equipment in many industrial and manufacturing settings. Pneumatic transportation can be built as a pressure or vacuum system.

The most commonly applied pneumatic conveying mode is pressure pneumatic conveying. In a pressure system, positive air pressure is used to push the product through the system. In a vacuum system, the air pressure is negative and is used to suck the product through the system.

Let IAC provide a labor saving, environmentally safe, turnkey solution to capture and pneumatically convey waste dust and fines from troublesome collection points within your plant, and transfer them to a dedicated waste silo, or other accumulation point with an automated truck loadout, for removal from the property.

IAC’s Vacuum Transfer Systems are designed to convey waste material to the accumulation point, with 100% safety factor in design, to rapidly deal with surges and unwanted slugs of material.

Sound Enclosures for Pneumatic Conveying System Blowers & Fans

IAC’s Pneumatic Conveying System Sound Enclosures are designed to lower environmental noise emitted by positive displacement (PD) blowers, compressors, and fans. They are completely free-standing and constructed of heavy gauge aluminum for corrosion resistance, weight savings and strength. Removable side panels or hinged doors fastened with quick release knobs provide immediate access to equipment. Sound attenuating acoustic lining typically lowers 3’ sound level to 15-22 dBA (actual attenuation level depends on final equipment configuration).
