The July, 2017 issue of Powder and Bulk Engineering magazine features an article by Nick Webber of UniTrak aimed at offering helpful advice to those needing to move difficult-to-handle materials.
Aeromechanical conveyors, such as Powderflight equipment from UniTrak, combine the simplicity and energy efficiency of conventional mechanical conveyors with the capacity and effectiveness of a pneumatic system. Due to their mode of operation, where the material is fluidized (moved by airflow) as it is conveyed, aeromechanical conveyors are a good equipment choice for moving difficult-to-handle materials.
In the article, Nick Webber explains the advantages of using aeromechanical conveyors for difficult-to-handle materials. He also highlights specific material examples where the use of an aeromechanical conveyor can be beneficial.
