Pro’s and cons of pneumatic conveying

There is also a need to move products around during one process or another in several different manufacturing areas. This may be the transition to the particular manufacturing sector of liquids, foods, medicines and other products that are important. In order to include a quick mechanism to ensure that the incidence of contamination is reduced if the fully mechanical conveyancing process is not eradicated, it is sometimes used.

Pneumatic conveying systems such as those offered by companies such as are included in this, and these systems have several different advantages over traditional mechanical systems.

For moving objects such as grains and powders, including products such as sugar, flour, medicinal powders, and construction products such as cement and sand, pneumatic systems are particularly useful. As the devices used are sealed, it provides a contained atmosphere where none of the particles in the surrounding areas can escape and cause problems. When attempting to transfer particles that could cause hazards to human health, this is extremely helpful. These systems’ nature also means that they take up less room and can be designed into areas that are already developed.


Through this technique, items created from large particles such as gravel and stone or liquid objects are extremely difficult to transport. This is because the pressure necessary to transfer them through the confined space will have to be very high. Using alternate conveying mechanisms, these types of objects need to be transferred.
