Sodimate supplies a complete pneumatic conveying system to inject powder into your process, from the storage to the fumes duct.
Pneumatic Conveyor Application:
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.
System with centrifugal fan
Double transfer with blowers for Flue Gas Treatment
Pneumatic Conveyor Description:
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.
Features of a Powder Conveying System:
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.
