HIGH-PRESSURE PNEUMATIC TRANSPORT

EL TRANSPORTE NEUMATICA A ALTA PRESION

Conventional compressed air transport, which uses low and medium pressure, has the following disadvantages: erosion of pipes and valves, changes in the particle size distribution of the materials, obstruction of pipes and valves, and high air consumption. These disadvantages can be significantly reduced if high-pressure air is used. This article describes a high-pressure transport system. The propulsion plant comprises five parts: (1) storage silos and pits for materials coming from the supplyer, (2) propulsion device, (3) pipes, (4) arrival depots with a system for filtering and unloading the material, and (5) electromagnetic driving equipment and control equipment. /TRRL/
