Pneumatic Transfer

Pneumatic transfer consists in transporting a solid product using a gas (usually air) as a carrying medium.

The advantages are:

  • Easy transport
  • Transport from A to B without junctions
  • Little product retention
  • Low cost for long distances
  • Clean installation

SABE designs and builds different pneumatic transfer systems, such as:

Dense phase pneumatic transport for a high concentration of product is achieved using vacuum or pressurisation.
Diluted phase pneumatic transport, by which air must place the particles to be transported in suspension, is achieved using vacuum or pressurisation.
The Airslide phase technique of pneumatic transfer is used to move the product forward by fluidising it on an air cushion.
