The Pulse-Flow PTA dense phase pneumatic conveying system from Gericke USA directs air or nitrogen into the pressure vessel and pipeline in timed, regular pulses that form the dry material into separate, wavelike, pulsed slugs.

The Pulse-Flow PTA dense phase pneumatic conveying system from Gericke USA directs air or nitrogen into the pressure vessel and pipeline in timed, regular pulses that form the dry material into separate, wavelike, pulsed slugs.

The pneumatic conveying system operates at high pressures with low gas velocities to safely convey sensitive products in mass flow up to 500 ft to a hopper, reactor vessel, silo, railcar, or other receiving destination with minimal particle degradation or separation. Suitable for conveying fragile, free-flowing, and cohesive powders, granulates, and coarse-grained products, the automated conveying system encompasses the feeding hopper, pressure vessel, pipeline, conveying and secondary air supply, and the company’s computer-driven, touch-screen control system. The integrated conveying system is suited for unattended, 24/7 operation with easy access for cleaning, minimal wear on bends and piping for low maintenance, and low gas consumption.
