Pharma Pneumatic Conveyor for Powders or Granules

The pneumatic POSITIVE pressure conveying (or PRESSURE conveying) is dedicated  to the transfer of larger quantities of powder or granulates under following conditions:

  • When the conveying capacity is high
  • When the distance and/or height of transfer is high
  • When the powder or granulate is «difficult» flowing
  • When „dense phase“ conveying is required

The positive pressure conveyors of JetSolutions SA work under pressure of approx +0.8 bar (800 mbar rel.) and with pipe diameter up to 250 mm. Under these conditions the conveying capacity is around 30 to/hr with a «solid / air» ratio equivalent to 10 and more.

We recommend preferring the negative pressure versus positive pressure conveying. The positive pressure conveying shows the following disadvantages:

  • More dust emission when discharging powder into a hopper
  • More risk of dust emission in case of a leaking pipe
  • More complex equipment at the loading point of the powder (blow tank or proof air lock needed)
