Maximizing Movement of Powders while Minimizing Dust Exposure with Properly Designed Pneumatic Conveying Components and Systems

April 11

Moving powders to processes via pneumatic conveying focuses on maximizing five core competencies: process efficiency, health and safety, cleanliness of both the plant and process equipment, maximizing equipment life, and end-product quality. Each of these components are a critical element when properly defining and designing pneumatic conveying systems for powder-handling applications, while considering the advantages and disadvantages of dilute vs. dense phase conveying, defining all components that make up a dust-free continuous conveying system, and incorporating important vacuum receiver design considerations for the dust-free transport of all powders, pigments, additives, fillers, flakes, fibers, wood-flour and other combustible dusts. 

Primary Topics: 
• Learn about the five core competencies that collectively maximize successful pneumatic conveying of powders to compounding and extrusion processes 
• Define and align the advantages and disadvantages of dilute vs. dense phase conveying 
• From plant receipt to end-product extrusion, learn how to design a successful continuous conveying system for even the most “Difficult-to-Convey” powders 
• Moving difficult powders, pigments, additives, wood-flour, flakes, fibers, and other dusty and combustible powders from storage to process – incorporating the Top Ten “Must-Haves” for successful continuous conveying of powders to processes
