Pneumatic Conveyance: The safest solution for moving powders, granules and solids

Pneumatic Conveyance Units

 

Handling materials is safer and easier than it’s ever been.

Traditional mechanical transport systems are outdated. Conveyor belts, screw conveyors and bucket elevators have been used for many years, and the same complaints are echoed through the ages. The most common challenges are:

 

  • Risk of illness or injury
  • Expensive maintenance
  • Low productivity and frequent stalling
  • Limited space and transport ability
  • Product loss from contamination or overheating

 

Pneumatic conveyance solves all of the above. Delfin systems are a completely customized solution, and they can be built around any layout of any sized facility. With flexible tubing and easy assembly, setups can be moved or modified with little expense or effort.

 

How does it work?

Pneumatic conveyors use vacuum as a driving force to transfer material to the preferred location, which is usually at a packaging station or a designated point in an assembly line.

Delfin conveyors are programmed to offer several functions in addition to A-B transport, and there are options available for transporting material in dense phase or diluted phase.
