We are using a one-ton capacity crane for loading and unloading material (maximum 300 kg) for processing purposes that needs a height of 25 ft. Instead of using a crane, we want to use a pneumatic conveyor. It should load and unload 300 kg of material and we can load it in 3 bags (3*100). Where can I find this type of conveyor and how much of it will be cast?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: Pneumatic conveyor selection6 December 2006 at 1:29pmThe choice of pneumatic conveyor depends on the size, shape and density of the material. If attrition is not an issue, an inexpensive dilute phase conveyor would work for most materials. Dense phase conveyors would depend on the fluidization characteristics of the material. There are hundreds of manufactures and most have experience in both types. It sounds like you would want a vacuum conveyor for unloading of bags. Some companies are Delta/Ducon, Smoot, Dynamic Air, Cyclonaire, Hapman, Hardy Systems, Vac-U-Max, Young Industries and Claudius Peters (in the Americas). Please note that you need to specify the amount of time you can allow for the unloading, but you should be able to unload 300 kg in 5-10 minutes with most small dilute phase vacuum conveyors.
