Vacuum conveying has proven itself as an efficient way to handle powders and automating processes while accommodating even the most challenging materials. When properly designed, material transfer systems contribute to the continued success of the system while reducing maintenance, equipment downtime and power consumption. This session will provide an objective technical overview of conveying techniques for non-free-flowing powders or granular materials, and how to improve their current systems with existing technologies. This session will focus on:

  • How to choose a vacuum conveying system for the successful transfer of non-free flowing powders or granular materials
  • Key factors in the context of non-free-flowing powders, including conveying rates and distances, material characteristics, flow aids, pick-up and discharge, filtration and safety concerns
  • How to overcome flow problems by choosing the right feed device, filter receiver and filters while focusing on factors like cleanability and safety
