Vacuum Dilute Phase Pneumatic Conveying

 

Vacuum dilute phase conveying is a great way to move powders when product degredation, abrasiveness, and segregation are not major concerns.  Products are conveyed at higher velocities with higher air volumes and lower air pressures in a continuous or batch manner.  Some vacuum dilute phase convey system characteristics/options are:

 

  • Inlet air cooling/heating or dehumidification

  • Multiple destinations or multiple sources (divert valves and/or source selection valves)

  • Equipment to meter product into convey line - rotary airlock or feeder

  • Filter/receiver at destination to separate air and conveyed product - many configurations

  • Cyclone receivers to separate granular products, fines, and air

  • Discharge valve based on process requirements - butterfly valve, rotary airlock, slide gate

  • Positive displacement blowers, two or three lobe configurations available

  • Batch or continuous process based on process requirements
