The Dense Phase pneumatic conveying systems proposed by Plantech born from specific experiences in the pneumatic transport at low speed.
The Dense Phase Conveying systems are particularly suited to the handling of bulk products, like granules, powders and re-ground. The flow rates of transport can reach up to 100 tons/h while the speed of conveying are in the order 5 – 10 m/s
The applications where the Dense Phase phase conveying have more application are:
- Conveying of fragile products: the low speed prevents breakages in the conveying pipe, this limiting to a minimum the breaking of the particles
- Conveying of abrasive products: the low speed minimizes the effect of friction in the conveyor pipe and therefore limits the breaking of the pipes themselves
- Conveying of pre-mixed products: the high concentration of the product in the volume of air matched to the low speed of transport ensures that the mixture not separate before arrival at destination
- Conveying over long distances: thanks to the introduction of valves of ignition air in the pipeline is possible to transfer products for distances even greater than 200 m
These features associated with the advantages of pneumatic conveying are particularly flexible and winning.
The sectors where the Dense Phase phase conveying have more application are:
- Plastics compound
- PVC compound
