The principle of pneumatic conveying is based on the fact that bulk goods can be moved to utilize air through pipelines. The bulk material often is very abrasive and lumpy. It may be stuck in some parts of the pipe, especially in the bends. As a result, all systems stop, and the conveying material wastes.
Our pneumatic conveying systems can automatize and optimize conveying, loading, and storage operations.
The Flow-Bow elbow is used to change the flow direction of dry, non-clotting bulk materials. The Flow-Bow has a wide range of applications including powdery, splintery, and highly abrasive bulk materials like e.g. quartz sand, shotcrete, and basalt chips even cocoa husks. Stainless steel designs are available for applications in plastics and foodstuffs production.
The Flow-Bow is designed to make a buffer layer from the conveying bulk materials. The buffer layer is formed at the place of the flow deflections, so which provides at the same time wear protection. The material cushion is completely removed on the final surge of the conveying with the last stream of compressed air.
The equipment was patented in 1981
