How to minimize particle degradation in pneumatic ...

A pneumatic conveying system can safely transport hazardous or dusty materials as well as solve other handling problems. Yet you may have heard that a pneumatic conveying system can cause particles to degrade to an unacceptable degree. If this has prevented you from installing a pneumatic conveying system in your plant, you should know that particle degradation can be minimized in several ways.

Particle degradation occurs when the individual particles of a bulk solid material fracture, abrade, rupture, or are otherwise damaged during handling. In a pneumatic conveying system, this is typically caused by high- velocity impacts or friction between particles or between particles and system walls.

Introduction to Pneumatic Conveying of Solids

Pneumatic conveying is the movement of solids through pipe using gas (usually air) as the motive force. It differs from hydraulic or slurry conveying in that the gas expands continuously along the pipe length. The flow regime in the pipe depends greatly on the ratio of solids to gas and the particle characteristics.
