Pneumatic transports

Pneumatic transports in the dilute phase are characterized by a high ratio between air volume and food quantity. They may be achieved both "by suction" and "by thrust".
The speed of the fluid transport reaches some tens of m/s and the diameter of the pipes is high if compared with the dense phase pneumatic transport.
Due to the considerable speed, the wear and tear of the pipes is also important.
Nevertheless, this type of transport is appropriate in those situations where an existing installation should be extended or modified.

The pneumatic conveyor is particularly ideal for the transport of pet food outlet from the extruder where the product characteristics (high temperature and stickiness) preclude the use of other transport systems.
