Pneumatic conveying is a type of system which we use to transport heavy material, powders and granules using a pipeline instead of using the conventional methods such as conveyors or other forms of technology which can be used for transporting such materials. The system of pneumatic conveying is solely depended upon differential pressure and the flow of nitrogen and air so that they can move the materials. The pneumatic conveyors can be broad of two types such as pressure conveyors, and vacuum conveyors. The two types have their own advantages and disadvantages. However, let us now take a look at the numerous advantages that we get from suing pneumatic conveying. As you can gather there are a variety of benefits which we get from using such a transporting system. Here is a list of some of the important benefits which we get from pneumatic conveying.
One of the major advantages which we get from using the transporting system is that it follows a simple route of transportation. This means that certain of the pneumatic conveying system will run in a certain way. For example, let us consider the screw pneumatic conveying system. This system runs only in a straight line and even the inclination is solely depended upon the materials. It follows a uniform pattern and does not stray from the originally laid down path. Since the pneumatic conveying system is of pipelines we can allow the pipelines to be laid down both horizontally and vertically. The pneumatic system can be laid on the floor and hence it can be used at any site which makes it easier for the workers without any troubles. Hence this is a major benefit which we get from using pneumatic conveying.
Wide Range Capacity
As you know that the pneumatic system is depended upon the pressure of gas and sir. Hence it can easily take up great loads. Therefore instead of relying on nut and bolts, you rely on gas and air. And we know that this will allow us to have a greater capacity enabling us to transport more materials at one go.
Ease of Installation
Another reason why we find most people using the pneumatic conveying system is that they are extremely to install. For the installation of the pneumatic system all, we need to do add an extra valve and we can successfully increase the scope of the pneumatic conveying system. Hence this also helps in saving loads of cost which can be avoided. Therefore we should keep these in mind when we considering the transporting system. This is a major advantage which we get from using such type of system.
As you can see that we do not have to spend much time on the maintenance of pneumatic conveying systems. We can easily just have some of the parts removed and we are good to go. You should also know that in the pneumatic conveying system there are only a few parts which need to be changed regularly and which can be done at a very low cost. The parts that need maintenance regularly are the valve, vacuum pump, air compressor, and other such items. These items can easily be fixed in the house also. Hence we save greatly on the maintenance costs.
As you can see that these are some of the important benefits which we receive from using the pneumatic conveying. There are various other benefits which include things such as safety of and also optimal performance is achieved from the system. The pneumatic system is well devised and never fails to give us it's the best working.
