Dense phase pneumatic conveying

Company’s latest DenseFlow PHF system suits a diverse range of free- to poor-flowing coarse and fine powders, automatically setting them into a single layer for continuous, gentle, first-in-first-out transport at rates up to 88 cubic feet per minute. The design introduces the air or other transport gas from both the pressure vessel and separately from a discharge elbow downstream to achieve a desirably low air to material ratio averaging 88 pounds of material per pound of conveying air.

Developed for safe, contactless, automated transport of cement, fly ash, sand and alumina, the DenseFlow PHF dry material conveying system is custom-engineered for each installation based on the required conveying distance, throughput rate, plus particle size and shape. The pneumatic conveying equipment components include the feeding hopper, pressure vessel, pipeline, activators, conveying and secondary air supplies, plus the company’s computer-driven STP 61 touch-screen control system as standard. — Gericke USA, Somerset, N.J., 855/888-0088;
