Our systems use a proprietary technology for the dense-phase pneumatic conveying of bulk materials in the form of powders and granules. They can have lengths exceeding 500 m and capacities greater than 100 metric tons/h.
The low conveying speed makes it possible to protect the quality and integrity of any type of material: brittle, abrasive, delicate, mixed, or prone to bridging.
Dense-phase pneumatic conveying is characterized by a high product/air efficiency ratio. The following is an indicative ratio of the air (or other gaseous fluids) to product:
Dense phase - about 30 liters of carrier gas per kilogram of product.
Other systems - about 1000 liters of carrier gas per kilogram of product.
The use of dense-phase pneumatic conveying technology enables cost savings and greater efficiency than conventional mechanical systems, including industrial conveyor belts or bucket elevators, or dilute-phase systems.
The greater flexibility of Air-Tec System™ solutions in comparison to dilute-phase systems with industrial conveyor belts and conventional methods of industrial automation, allows them to be combined with any type of machine: extractors, silos, screws, hoppers, big-bag emptying stations, bag splitters, electrostatic precipitators, and filters. Furthermore, the possibility of using nitrogen during conveying makes it possible to use the systems in ATEX environments.
