Pneumatic conveying systems, which we have been developing and refining for are particularly satisfying to see our regimes being used by varied process industries across the country to transport their granules and powders as far as they need to go. While many process industries make use of our pneumatic conveying systems, some of them are not at all similar. Here are five of the industries that make great use of pneumatic conveying regimes on a daily basis.
The food industry is an enormous industry that constantly demands higher levels of hygiene and efficiency. Pneumatic conveying systems are easy to transport their materials in bulk, as they are more hygienic and versatile than more conventional mechanical conveying methods. Pneumatic conveying systems can be used to convey a wide variety of foods and these can encompass essentials such as rice, wheat, oats, maize, cereals, seeds and grains, sugar and salt to powders such as flour, starch, gluten, milk & whey powder, bakery ingredients, additives, flavors.
The unique demands of the pharmaceutical industry mean that any conveying systems used in the industry must be designed and implemented to good manufacturing practice guidelines, operational safety, and making systems easy to clean. These conveying systems are popular in the pharmaceutical industry due to the suction’s ability to make sure that all powder remains contained within the system.
Products can be hazardous in the chemical industry, requiring provisions such as explosion hazards, dust control, environmental protection, and cross-contamination control.
Pneumatic conveyors are designed in handling and conveying systems for the mineral industry. Examples of how these systems are used in this industry include slurry mixing tanks and handling minerals like lime, cement, coal, sand, and ash.
The plastics and polymers handle and store all their materials used in their blending, mixing, pulverizing, extruding, and molding processes including granular and powder polymers and additives. Our pneumatic conveying systems feed hundreds of extrusion and molding machines in the plastics industry.
