Pneumatic deflection elbows cut wear, dust, offload time for bulk handling

The tight-radius Smart Elbow deflection component provides a controlled flow, which is especially advantageous when conveying dusty materials such as cement or fly ash.

San Antonio-based Robert Ober & Associates is a design/build firm serving an international client base for bulk material handling projects that range from $25,000 retrofit contracts to $25 million turnkey plant projects. Its early focus on pneumatic handling for concrete plants has grown to include a wide range of material transfer, weigh batching, and powder blending systems in other industries. About 60 percent of that focus is on new plant designs, the remainder on retrofits.
