PNEUMATIC CONVEYING SYSTEMS
 
THE CONCEPT
 
The art of transporting bulk materials through a pipe line by either a negative or a positive pressure airstream is called Pneumatic Conveying. The simplest pneumatic conveyor is a miniature hurricane, directed to a certain destination by means of a pipe.The air, when moving with sufficient velocity, will carry objects in its path, depending on its substance or weight. The reference to art is made here because Pneumatic Conveying is more an art than a science.
Pneumatic Conveying Systems are designed by vast experience, rather than just by formulae. KILBURN offers optimally designed systems which offer considerable economy.
