Frequently Asked Questions – Pneumatic Conveying System
Q1: What is a Pneumatic Conveying System?
A. Pneumatic Conveying System is a bulk material handling technique that utilizes the pressure of air or gas to transport materials. It is a widely adopted means of dry bulk material transportation in various industries. The system uses air or gas pressure to propel materials through pipelines or ducts, delivering them to their designated destination. There are two common methods of conveying, Lean Phase and Dense Phase.
Q2. How does a Pneumatic Conveying System work?
A. In a Pneumatic Conveying System, an air stream or vacuum is created to generate the necessary pressure. The velocity of the air stream is adjusted based on the quantity of materials to be conveyed. The materials are then entrained in the air stream and transported through pipelines or ducts to the desired location.
Q3. In which industries are Pneumatic Conveying Systems commonly used?
A. Pneumatic Conveying Systems find extensive use in various industries such as Chemicals, Oil & Gas, Fertilizers, Port Operations, Food & Dairy, Pharmaceuticals, Plastic Processing, Cement Industry, Steel Plants, Aluminium Plants, Distilleries and many more. These systems provide efficient and reliable material transportation in these industries.
Q4. How are Pneumatic Conveying Systems customized to meet specific requirements?
A. At Acme Air Equipments Company Pvt. Ltd., we design, fabricate, install, and service Pneumatic Conveying Systems based on the data provided by our customers. The rate of material transfer helps determine the size of the power source, filters, and cyclones. Additionally, if portability is required, we can provide trolleys for ease of movement. There are two common methods of conveying, Lean Phase and Dense Phase.
Q5. What are the advantages of using a Pneumatic Conveying System?
A. Pneumatic Conveying Systems offer several advantages, including efficient and fast material transportation, reduced manual labor, minimized product degradation or loss, flexibility in system design and layout, and the ability to handle various types of materials, including powders, granules, and pellets. Additionally, they are suitable for both short and long-distance conveying applications.
