What is a Pneumatic Conveying System?

It is a system that transfers powders and other dry bulk materials through an enclosed pipeline. The motive force for this transfer comes from a combination of pressure differential and the flow of a gas, such as air or nitrogen. The system’s basic elements include a motive air source, a feeder or similar material-introduction device, a termination vessel, a conveying line, and a dust collection system.

Some of the most common materials transferred by pneumatic conveying systems are flour, sand, cement, and plastic pellets. Chemicals, food products, and minerals can also be pneumatically conveyed. These materials are usually fairly dry; materials in slurry or paste form typically aren’t suited to pneumatic conveying.
