Pneumatic Conveying Systems

Considered today as one of the most efficient means of transporting products due to its safety, hygiene, precision and reliability, pneumatic conveying is the solution to a multitude of product movement problems.

Adaptable to any need in terms of capacity and length, this technology greatly simplifies the transfer of products between production sectors. With extensive experience in the application of this system, Prillwitz has specialized in the application of pneumatic conveyors for a wide variety of products, employing specific techniques for each of these.

Thanks to the vast experience in the implementation of pneumatic and mechanical conveying systems, Prillwitz has the necessary know-how to adapt the various machines to the particular product to be conveyed, through the application of specific techniques.

A regenerative turbine, a rotary piston blower or a fan can be used to generate the required air. In the case of using a compressor, it is possible to insert an air-to-air cooler for pneumatic conveying in order not to deteriorate the characteristics of the product.

Among our accessories for pneumatic conveying, the HSP rotary valves and HSD extraction sluices that ensure the loading and unloading of the product into the pipeline with absolute tightness stand out. VTN and VTNG valves allow diverting the pneumatic conveying lines to different discharge points.
