3. Example of calculation to design a dense phase conveying system Example of sizing of dense phase conveying line from pilot plant results. A trial is organized to design an industrial dense phase pneumatic conveying line for a material that is sensitive to breakage.
There are few existing methods published to calculate dense phase pneumatic conveying system s but most of the knowledge here stays with specialized suppliers. Anyway, if dilute phase pneumatic conveying lines can be sized pretty confidently thanks to models, it is less true for dense phase conveying . READ MORE
Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying. For conveying fragile or sheer sensitive products, a dense phase system is the better choice. These systems are designed to operate at low velocities to minimize product breakage and sheering. Dense phase uses a pulse of product pushed by a pulse of air, then another pulse of product followed by a pulse of air.
Dense phase pneumatic conveying is less common than comparable dilute phase because of the greater capital investment involved, if there is no need to be concerned about breakage or wear. Dense phase systems are more commonly powered by higher pressure (~100 PSIG) and higher horsepower air compressions, making them more costly to operate so it

High pressure during conveying: Too much product in the line: Review the settings of the equipment feeding the material For dense phase, adjust the pressure in the pressure tank and action of discharge aids if any For vacuum dense phase, adjust air injection / plug forming valve
Nov 24, 2017· The key difference between pneumatic and hydraulic/slurry conveying of solids is that the carrier gas will expand continuously as it goes along the pipe. The flow regime in the pipe (dense or dilute phase) will depend on the ratio of gas to solids and the characteristics of the particles. This workbook contains 2 sheets: Dilute Phase Properties
A leak in a pressure conveying system will quickly result in a dust cloud in the plant, a primary element for a combustible dust explosion. To protect delicate or friable materials from degradation, dense phase conveying (where material slugs along in the line en-masse) may be the method used to transfer materials.
Dilute phase uses both regenerative and PD blowers. The term dilute phase notates a higher ratio of air to product mix during conveying. The exact blend of air to product is determined by calculations that are derived from formulas that depend on pneumatic conveying factors specific to
Pneumatic conveying is a common method for the transporting granular media, where grains are driven through pipes by air ﬂow. It is used in the food industry and in civil and chemi-cal engineering. There are two modes of pneu-matic conveying: dilute and dense phase con-veying. Dilute phase conveying has been stud-ied in much detail, but not
Dense phase conveying system are a type of the pneumatic conveying system, which is using air to transport bulk solids / powder in pipes. Dense phase conveying differs from the other main technology of pneumatic conveying, dilute phase,by the fact to use only a small weight of air compared to the weight of product being transported.
PNEUMATIC CONVEYING QUICK SIZING GUIDELINES NOTE: To provide ballpark sizing information we assume the following system parameters: SYSTEM LAYOUT: 200 Ft. Horizontal, 50 Ft. Vertical, Four 90 Degree Elbows MATERIAL DENSITY: 40 Pounds per Cubic Foot (PCF) A PRESSURE DILUTE PHASE CONVEYING SYSTEM WITH A DUROFLOW POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT BLOWER
solids loading ratio of 10, for example, it could be conveyed in dilute phase or dense phase. It would only be with the value of the conveying line inlet air velocity that the mode of flow could be determined. But in the case of dilute phase conveying the preferred ratio of solid to air is 2:1. Conveying capacity
larly if it were a low velocity dense phase system. Since pneumatic conveying systems tend to have high power ratings, particularly for conveying in dilute phase suspension flow, it is useful to be able to obtain a rough esti-mate of air requirements at the feasibility stage of a project. Most of the operating cost of a pneumatic conveying system
Introducing Versatile Air. Kice has been in the dilute phase of pneumatic conveying for over 50 years and has covered a number of materials. This includes wheat flour, corn meal, soy meal, whole grains, spices, wood products from chips to flour, plastics from virgin pellets to regrind, meat by-products and many more commodities.
information on pneumatic conveying. This provides an understanding of dilute and dense phase conveying modes, solids loading ratio and the inﬂuence of pressure and convey-ing distance, and hence pressure gradient, on ﬂow mechanisms and capabilities. It also provides a review of major system types, feeding devices, air movers and ﬁltration
These constitute the most widely used of pneumatic conveying systems. Dense-Phase. There is no universally agreed-upon demarcation of when a dilute-phase (material-into-air-to-stream) system becomes a semi-dense phase or dense-phase plug-flow system. For US Systems, a dense-phase system is a system that requires a rated pressure-vessel.
Jan 07, 2018· Segmentation By Operating Principle • Dilute phase • Dense phase Dilute phase conveying systems operate with high speed and often used with nonabrasive and nonfragile materials, commonly used for powders and granules. In 2016, the segment contribu...
“Dense-phase pneumatic conveying is frequently misunderstood,” says Jones. “The workshop will identify the key elements required for reliable dense-phase conveying. It will provide methods to assess bulk materials for their suitability for dense-phase conveying and look at applications where the risk of using dense phase is very small
In many cases the horsepower requirements for a Dense Phase system are less than those in a Dilute Phase system conveying material at the same rate. The lower horsepower requirement in Dense Phase system makes them more energy efficient in most cases, and the low volume of air used means less dusting and dust collection requirements.
density" we mean that a 2 inch particle of a polymer resin can be moved via pneumatic conveying, but a 2 inch lead ball would not. Types of Pneumatic Conveying There are several methods of transporting materials using pneumatic conveying. In general, they seem to fall into three main categories: dilute phase, dense phase, and air conveying. 1.
