Long distance pneumatic conveying of bulk solids.

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This paper provides a background to the basic concepts of pneumatic conveying and highlights the added difficulties encountered when transport of solids over long distances is required. The need for better blow tank control to feed the solids into the conveying line and techniques for achieving such control are addressed. Some applications of this technology are given together with an explanation of why the present 'state-of-the-art' of pneumatic conveying indicates the advisability of carrying out full scale laboratory experiments at the design stage of medium and long distance pneumatic conveying installations.
