Sodimate pneumatic conveying systems can convey powders over long distances, with a flow rate range from 0.5 lb/h to 2,200 lb/h.
Pneumatic conveying systems are the best alternative to screw conveyors when the installation requires complex paths and a high injection point that would otherwise be difficult to reach.

Double transfer with blowers for Flue Gas Treatment
The Sodimate Mechanical Arch Breaker discharges and doses the product stored in the silo or Big Bag emptying stands to a Tee to which the blowing device is connected. Then the compressed air conveys the powder to the injection point through a pipe.
The pneumatic conveying is done in a dilute phase, allowing us to operate with a low pressure and cost-effective blowing device, e.g. a fan or a regenerative blower.
The isometry and the negative pressure at the injection point are considered when sizing the systems to comply with the standard air flow rates of each powder.
A Pitot probe located on the acceleration hose measures the air velocity and pressure to regulate the blower speed and the airflow accordingly.
The screw feeder outlet is coated with a anti-stick liner to discharge the powder into the pneumatic conveying pipe.
Sodimate pipes are transparent, flexible, light and easy to install.
Our system includes a custom injection lance specifically designed for each powder and application.
