Understanding Dilute Phase Pneumatic Conveying in the Plastics Industry


Date: Tuesday, May 14, 2013 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM US Eastern Time

Location:

Description: Several factors should be considered when selecting a dilute phase pneumatic conveying system for plastics applications. Understanding the basics of pneumatic conveying can go a long way to ensure the best choices are made for an efficient and long lasting system. Two very important factors to consider are system pressure and product velocity. These two factors are strongly related but have independent functions. Paying careful attention to these can significantly extend the life of your pneumatic conveying system. During this webinar you will learn the advantages and disadvantages of choosing a positive pressure system vs. a vacuum conveying system. We will present conveying techniques for bulk material delivery to storage, storage to process and finished product to storage packaging. We will also identity common problems that may occur with pneumatic conveying systems and present technical solutions. When choosing a supplier for your next conveying application, you will be certain you are asking the right questions. • Basics of Dilute Phase Pneumatic Conveying Systems • Pressure Drop Across a Conveying System • Positive Pressure vs Vacuum • Velocity in Pneumatic Systems • Common Pneumatic Systems • Common Problems and Solutions
