Pneumatic Conveying Systems

Conveyors for Dense Phase

Engineered for Each Project by Schenck Process

Pneumatic conveying is key to a bulk material handling system. Our range of Clyde Process, Pneumatic Conveying systems – using Dense Phase – are proudly adopted globally and provide dependable, high efficiency performance, whilst being bespoke and engineered for the processing of bulk materials, in a variety of industries.

Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying is a method for handling bulk materials, using high pressure and low gas volumes, to efficiently push materials along the bottom of an enclosed pipeline.

How Pneumatic Conveying Works:
Suitable for handling and moving a wide range of materials, including difficult, abrasive products and ranging from fine cohesive powders to wet lumpy coal, Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying pushes the material along the pipe in a plug form, at relatively low velocities. This means minimal wear on pipes and bends, allowing for minimum maintenance and long life performance.

Efficient use of compressed air also gives low power consumption and operating costs, whilst the enclosed pipeline ensures no material escapes and is therefore not wasted. Material is commonly transferred from a single collection point to either a single or multiple reception points.

Benefits of Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying:
  • Minimum Maintenance
  • Minimal Wear for Long Life
  • Low Operating Costs
  • No Wasted Material
