Pneumatic Conveying of Titanium Dioxide Powder

This Pneumatic Conveying System was installed at a paint production facility and was used to convey Titanium Dioxide over a distance of 400 feet to material receiving hoppers.  It was also designed to pneumatically convey calcined clay, calcium carbonate, mica, amortized silica and feldspar.

Titanium Dioxide is a highly cohesive and adhesive powder containing agglomerated lumps.  It tends to coat steel surfaces and is moderately abrasive.  The powder in this case study had a moisture content of 1%.

A Denseveyor was designed, tested and installed for smooth, efficient vessel filling and discharge.  The vessel was filled using a Dome valve.  Pipeline boosters are not required.

The dense phase mode of conveying resulted in low pipe wear (the manufacturer provides no-wear guarantees for pipes and bends).  It has a transfer capacity of 40 tons per hour over a distance of 400 feet to six reception points.
