Pneumatic Conveying

    A pneumatic conveying system is one that transfers bulk loose product from one point to another through a pipeline The most efficient system is a pressure type and is one that picks up from a single point and discharges to one or more locations.
    A vacuum system is less efficient but can be used to pick up from multiple locations and discharge to a single point.
    If multiple pickup points and multiple discharge points are to be served, a combination system (Pull-Push) can be used. The most efficient combination is one that uses the shortest distance possible on the vacuum side and most of the conveying distance on the pressure side.
    The most efficient for a combination system (but more initial cost) is a two blower system, utilizing one blower for the vacuum conveying and one blower for the pressure conveying.
