Summary

Pneumatic conveying usage has grown extensively since the end of World War II as evidenced by the fact that the number of equipment system suppliers has grown from about a half-dozen to well over 200 In the United States today. Accompanying this growth have been significantly more different designs and types which have not necessarily made the selection of a particular system for a specific application easier. Consequently, this presentation will provide an updated overview of various aspects of pneumatic conveyor selection from the time of Initial consideration to confirmation testing In order to facilitate better utilization of these unit designs.
