The dilute phase is the most used in pneumatic conveying of bulk materials.
The system is also defined as the flow of material in suspension or “transport in flight” because the particles are maintained in suspension in the air along the pipe.
The flow rates of can reach up to 30 tons/h , while the speed of conveying are in the order of 20-30 m/s
The sectors where the dilute phase conveying have more application are:
- Plastics compound
- PVC compound
All the product can be transported both in powdery form, granular or re-ground.
The dilute phase conveying can be realized with systems:
- Positive pressure: said “PRESSURE”
- Negative pressure: said “VACUUM”
- Mixed pressure: said “VACUUM/PRESSURE”
