Dilute phase pneumatic conveying:
Benefits and Applications

Pneumatic conveying in dilute phase is the main system used in the pneumatic handling of bulk materials due to its cost-effectiveness and ease of installation. This method, also known as ‘transport on the fly,’ requires the particles to be kept in suspension in the transport fluid for the entire journey. To ensure this, they operate at considerably high speeds, with typical values in the order of 20 m/s on departure and 30-35 m/s on arrival.

What is dilute phase pneumatic conveying?

Pneumatic conveying in the dilute phase consists of conveying suspended solid or particulate materials within a flow of compressed air through pipes or ducts. This approach allows bulk materials to be moved over considerable distances, both horizontally and vertically, efficiently. Air acts as a vehicle for transporting materials, ensuring fast and controlled handling

Advantages of the Dilute phase pneumatic conveying

  • Contained Operating Costs: With low energy consumption and relatively simple maintenance, this transport system offers a cost-effective solution in the long term.
  • Absence of contamination: By transporting the product in a confined air stream within a pipe, maximum product purity is guaranteed and contamination of the surrounding environment is avoided.
  • Installation flexibility: Pneumatic conveying can be configured according to the specific requirements of the application and environmental conditions.
