What is Pneumatic Conveying

Principle of Pneumatic Conveying
Pneumatic Conveying is the transfer of materials from one point in a process to another point using an air stream. Pneumatic conveying is particularly well suited to to the transference of powders or granules within machinery or processes. A pneumatic conveying system can deliver selected quantities of material at specifically desired time intervals. Material transfer is done in a perfect hygienic condition maintaining material integrity, minimizing material attrition due to wastage and respecting both employee health and environmental impact.

The Principle of Pneumatic Conveying

Operating principle: a suction system creates vacuum within the hopper, allowing the material to be suctioned; then the material is discharged at the point of destination, i.e. a mixer, a packaging machine or a container.

Thanks to the high level of efficiency of the filtration system, Nilfisk pneumatic conveyors minimize the discharge of dust into the environment. Nilfisk is non-polluting and environmentally-friendly.
