A Pneumatic Conveying Concept for gentle Material Transport

Any pneumatic conveying system creates friction and fines. In addition to the optimized Strandphase conveying, Pelletron uses Pellbow pipe bends to further reduce the creation of fines and the DeDuster to remove remaining fines. Pelletron calls the combination of all three pellcon3. According to Pelletron, the resulting conveying system reduces friction and creation of fines, is easy to operate, easy to maintain and low in investment costs.

Pelletron offers various types of pneumatic conveying systems for powders and other granular applications.

Strandphase by Pelletron Coproration is a conveying technology for gentle conveying of granular products. Moderate velocities prevent breakage and attrition of the conveyed product, keeps the generation of dust at a very low level and prevents the creation of long angel hair. Most importantly, Strandphase does not create fine micro-dust as seen in dense phase systems or long streamers created in dilute phase systems.

In many cases, the pipe diameters are smaller in comparison with dense phase systems. Because of these advantages, the investment costs for large scale Strandphase systems are much lower than slow-motion dense phase systems.

Pellbow is a special, patented pipe elbow. The design resembles a standard short-radius elbow with a large expanded chamber between the inlet and discharge of the elbow. The soft impact of pellets in the slurry zone and the low wall friction eliminate the creation of streamers and make the Pellbow wear-resistant. Its pressure loss is only slightly higher than that of standard long and short-radius elbows. A complete purge is accomplished simply by using the same conveying air volume and pressure.

DeDuster is the dust and angel hair removal unit. Regardless of conveying method used, friction is generated by the velocity and pressure. This results in attrition of the conveyed product. The DeDuster removes dust particles providing high quality resin with remaining dust content below 50 ppm. No other dust removal unit can reach this cleaning efficiency.

Existing dense phase and dilute phase systems may be upgraded to incorporate pellcon3 technology. Upgrading an existing system to pellcon3 provides a quick return-on-investment. pellcon3 systems guarantee high quality resins, are easy to operate, easy to maintain and are low in investment costs, which results in higher market prices for your conveyed materials.
