A dense-phase conveying system for sensitive products

By Chemical Engineering |

Gericke USA

The Pulse-Flow PTA dense-phase pneumatic conveying system (photo) directs air or nitrogen into the pressure vessel and pipeline in timed, regular pulses that form the dry material into separate, wavelike, pulsed slugs. Creating a gentle conveying action, the Pulse-Flow PTA operates at high pressures with low gas velocities to safely convey sensitive products, using mass flow, up to 500 ft into a hopper, reactor vessel, silo, railcar or other receiving destination with minimal particle degradation or separation. Suitable for conveying fragile, free-flowing and cohesive powders, granulates and coarse-grained products, the automated Pulse-Flow PTA conveying system encompasses the feeding hopper, pressure vessel, pipeline, conveying and secondary air supply, as well as the company’s computer-driven, touchscreen control system. — Gericke USA, Inc., Somerset, N.J.
