Papers presented at the one-day seminar, Successful Pneumatic Conveying, held at the Coventry University Technology Park Conference Centre, UK, 24 February Description: 92 pages: illustrations ; 24 cm. What is pneumatic conveying? Pneumatic conveying is the movement of solids through pipe using gas (usually air) as the motive force. It differs from hydraulic or slurry conveying in that the gas expands continuously along the pipe length. The flow regime in the pipe depends greatly on the ratio of solids to gas and the particle characteristics. Pneumatic systems are particularly suitable for conveying materials where space is limited. All conveyor solutions are custom-made to suit your specific production waste handling needs. Various conveyor solutions utilize suction and pressure systems, creating a vacuum or pressure, and the material can be moved horizontally and vertically. David Mills has worked in the field of pneumatic conveying for over forty years. From – he was Professor of Bulk Solids Handling at Glasgow Caledonian University. He has published over papers in the field, and has been working as an independent consultant in pneumatic conveying since --This text refers to the paperback Reviews: 1.
