Product Name: Pneumatic Conveyor
Dilute Phase Pneumatic Conveyors
Flexicon dilute phase pneumatic conveyor systems range from single-point
"up-and-in" installations to crossplant systems with multiple pick-up and
discharge points and automated controls, satisfying an exceptionally wide range
of bulk conveying applications. All are custom-engineered and fully integrated
with other Flexicon equipment and systems, and your new or existing process.
Flexicon dilute phase pneumatic conveyors move bulk materials that are suspended
in an air stream that is introduced by a positive pressure blower upstream of
material intake points, or by a vacuum pump that removes air from the system
downstream of material discharge points. Material is separated from the
conveying air at the use point, then discharged on a batch basis via butterfly
or slide gate valves, or continuously via rotary airlock valves.
Easy conveyor line routing
Since conveyor lines can be routed vertically and in any horizontal direction,
over short or long distances, through small holes in walls or ceilings, Flexicon
pneumatic conveying systems are easy to integrate into production environments
in which process equipment and other obstacles often exist, while consuming
minimal floor space.
Diversity of products handled by one conveyor
Powders having wide ranging bulk densities, as well as flakes, pellets,
capsules, tablets and other friable materials, can be handled by a single
Flexicon pneumatic conveying system, providing the flexibility needed to
transport multiple ingredients.
Flexicon pneumatic conveying systems fully evacuate the vessel being discharged
and the conveyor line itself, minimizing cross-contamination of multi-ingredient
systems. Complete transfer of material also ensures that individual and
consolidated batch ingredients reach their destinations accurately by weight,
maximizing quality while minimizing waste.
Wide capacity range
With a Flexicon pneumatic conveyor, capacity can range from several pounds to
tens of tons per hour, feeding any destination from small packaging lines to
silos and railcars. Moreover, excessive fluctuations in the feed rate—resulting
in overloading or underloading—will not damage the system.
Enclosed system prevents contamination
Totally enclosed and dust-free, a Flexicon pneumatic conveying system prevents
contamination of the product and plant environment, allowing safe transfer of
contamination sensitive materials including dusty and hazardous products.
High reliability and ease of maintenance
Flexicon pneumatic conveyors feature easy-to-maintain filter receivers with
access doors and inspection ports, as well as rotary airlock valves with
optional rotor support bars for easy access, cleaning and inspection.
Mobile and custom configurations
Self-contained Flexicon pneumatic conveying systems complete with feed hopper
and/or pick-up wand, blower unit, filter receiver and control package, are
available pre-engineered and configured on caster-mounted frames for in-plant
Designed, constructed and finished to industrial and sanitary standards
Flexicon pneumatic conveying systems are available in carbon steel with durable
industrial finishes, or stainless steel finished to standards required for
industrial, food, dairy and pharmaceutical applications. Available upgrades
include quick-access and quick disconnect fitments.
