Pneumatic or Aero Mechanical Conveyors: Which are best?

February 24, 2015

Aero mechanical conveyors used to move food ingredients
Are you considering pneumatic or aero mechanical conveyors for your application? When working with dry bulk ingredients, moving them from one location to a point of use is an important part of your process that should be carefully considered. The material characteristics of your ingredients along with your application parameters and budget should be thoroughly evaluated to maximize benefits in regard to conveying rate, safety, cleanliness, efficiency and return on investment. When a dilute phase type of pneumatic transfer system is considered, one should always evaluate another option with considerable benefit – aero mechanical conveying. An Aero mechanical conveyor transfers [...]

Selecting A Mechanical Conveyor

January 23, 2014

Mechanical Conveyor Choices: Everything to Consider Before You Buy
Selecting a mechanical conveyor for material handling solutions will depend on the specific requirements of the end user.  Points to consider are safety, energy consumption, prevention of contamination, dust containment and minimal degrading of the product.  The budget and return on investment will determine the level of sophistication and the suitability of a particular conveyor to meet the application. During the conveyor selection process a specification must be prepared to define the constraints the conveyor must achieve whatever the industry.   This should include characteristics of the ingredients being handled, conveying capacity, materials of construction, dimensional constraints (layout) and any hazards [...]
