Unloading Rail Cars with Dilute Phase Conveying

Dilute phase conveying is the act of using a pneumatic conveyor to transfer materials from one place to another inside an enclosed are. Dilute phase conveyors are used for conveying non-abrasive loose materials when high material velocities and product degradation is not present. One of the main uses for this style of conveyor system is to unload materials from a rail car into a factory for further processing. Continue reading

Conveying Seeds in Industrial Settings

Dense phase pneumatic conveying systems use low-velocity motive gas with a high-pressure differential to move bulk materials quickly and easily. Many manufacturing companies that work with delicate materials choose dense phase systems over less dense systems because the dense phase systems work with lower velocities than other conveying systems. Low velocity is easier on delicate materials that could become damaged by harsher transportation processes. Continue reading

Considerations for Switching to Dense Phase Conveyors

A dense phase conveying system is simply another name for a high-pressure conveying system. High pressure systems are necessary for certain industrial processes to push objects along the conveyor using positive pressure to move the objects along at a lower velocity. The reason dense phase is a high-pressure, low-velocity system is due to the air to weight ratio of the objects carried along by the conveyor. Typically, the high pressure systems are used to move heavier objects along the conveyor, which leads to a lower velocity of the items on the conveyor belt. A unit is considered a dense phase conveying system if it has air pressure ratings about 15 PSIG. Continue reading

The Advantages of Dense Phase Conveying

Dense phase conveying was designed to handle bulk materials and heavy, abrasive objects. Typically, the conveyance method is used with rough manufacturing materials, such as rocks, loose materials, and other heavy, bulk equipment and particles. Most commonly, dense phase conveying is used to transport friable, agglomerated, heavy, or blended materials from place to place. Without this form of dense bulk conveying, many manufacturing plants would have to come up with other, less-effective methods to handle large amounts of heavy and abrasive raw materials. Continue reading

Bulk Up: Heavy Duty Bulk Conveyors

Bulk conveyors are designed to carry large amounts of material from one place to another. Often, they are used to transport raw materials, like rocks, sand, or other heavy, raw materials. Depending on the conveyor, some bulk conveyors are constructed for light duty and the transportation of lighter and less abrasive items, while others are used for transporting the heaviest and most abrasive materials available. Continue reading

The Importance of Bulk Conveyors in Coal Mines

One of the most important machines in any coal mine is the bulk conveyor. A bulk conveyor is a conveyor that can carry large amounts of products from one place to another quickly. Conveyors are used in coal mines to transfer the coal and also to transfer dirt, rocks, and other materials out of the mine to make it easier to find new coal sources. Conveyors are such as necessary part of the mining business that the industry can claim the world’s longest conveyor belt, which is nearly 61 miles long. Continue reading

4 Elements to Look for in Grain Bag Unloaders

Bulk bag unloaders are a highly useful tool for many industries and manufacturing plants. The unloaders can quickly remove the contents from a bag without causing the materials to create a large amount of dust or become contaminated by surrounding materials or contaminants. The bulk bag unloaders can easily empty a bag into a machine or some other area for further processing and transformation into a new product. Continue reading

How Air Can Improve Traditional Conveyor Systems

Traditional belt conveyors are highly useful in both commercial and industrial settings. Nearly every warehouse and factory uses some version of a conveyor. Packing centers use conveyors to transport packages, airlines use conveyors to move luggage, grocery stores use conveyors to move groceries, and factories use conveyors to move products from one place to another. Many factories use automatic conveyors to help products travel through automatic machines and slide products past human workers for quality control or to complete processes that robots cannot do.
