Pneumatic Conveyors

A conveyor is any mechanical device used to transfer material from one location to another. Unlike conventional belt conveyors, pneumatic conveyors use a piping system and high-pressure air to move lightweight particles or objects through the system. There are two types of pneumatic conveyors. Carrier systems used high-pressure air to move an object from one point to another. Dilute-phase systems use pressure to guide materials through a system.
