Pneumatic conveying moves materials quickly using low-velocity pressurized air. Compared to dilute phase pneumatic conveying, dense phase systems require less overall air consumption, and their low-velocity air stream results in less damage and subsequent maintenance requirements. The systems shown in the case studies below work by creating pressure differentials using compressed air or other gases. They also transfer materials through airflow, which is commonly referred to as pneumatic conveyance.

Pneumatic conveying systems vary in application and material designation. Five different systems are available including the Denseveyor, Controlveyor Injection System, Sand Pump, Ashveyor, and the Cementveyor. Each pneumatic conveying system is tailored to do a different conveying task.
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.
A cast plaque factory used the Ashveyor pneumatic conveying system to reduce new foundry sand purchase and disposal requirements. The factory is one of seven in North America that produces cast aluminum and bronze, etched, ADA, ceramic inserts, bas-relief, giclee, and photo relief plaques.
This type of sand pump and transport system moves sand and other abrasive bulk solids in a discontinuous, dense-phase pneumatic conveying system. This type of movement can also be referred to as “slug flow”.
This pneumatic conveying system is designed specifically for conveying hot abrasive ash, such as bottom ash (or fly ash) from boiler beds, baghouses, or electrostatic precipitators. These systems can handle temperatures up to 650°F (1,800°F with assembly) and can be arranged in a single line of 1 to 10 units. The Macawber pneumatic conveying systems also use about 50% less energy than typical fly ash conveying systems.
