1. Basis for the Calculation Method The calculations for the design of a dilute phase conveying sys-tem are based on determining the pressure drop that is gener-ated in the system due to the flow of gas and solids. ZENZ and OTHMER state that this pressure drop, for both dilute and dense phase conveying, is composed of six effective forces:

Introduction to Pneumatic Conveying of Solids Karl Jacob The Dow Chemical Company Engineering Sciences/Solids Processing Calculate pressure drop –check if pressure drop, velocity and pipe size agree the capacity of a dilute phase conveying system needs to be increased. Take, for example, a
Dilute Phase Conveying Pneumatic Conveying System. Dilute Phase Pneumatic Conveying is ideal for transporting a wide range of dry bulk materials in a simple and cost effective manner. Materials are fed into a high velocity gas stream by use of rotary airlock valves and
Dilute phase uses both regenerative and PD blowers. The term dilute phase notates a higher ratio of air to product mix during conveying. The exact blend of air to product is determined by calculations that are derived from formulas that depend on pneumatic conveying factors specific to
Apr 11, 2016 Episode 40 : DESIGN EXAMPLE DILUTE PHASE PNEUMATIC CONVEYING DESIGN EXAMPLE DILUTE PHASE PNEUMATIC CONVEYING A plastics production plant wants to increase the capacity through an existing conveying system. The existing system has 6 inch ID pipes and is configured as shown in the diagram below.
Dilute phase pneumatic conveying is well suited for continuous conveying when degradation and abrasive wear are not issues. Dilute phase is a high-velocity system where the conveyed material is continuously suspended in the air as it is blown or sucked through the pipeline.
Jan 13, 2011 In theory, it’s simple, since there are really only two categories: If the conveyed material is suspended in air throughout the pipeline, the mechanism meets the definition of dilute phase conveying. If it’s conveyed at low velocity in a non-suspension mode, on the other hand, the system falls under the umbrella of dense phase conveying.
Jun 26, 2019 Dilute phase pneumatic conveying is a popular choice among pet food manufacturers for transferring dry materials. Using air as a conveyance medium has a number benefits over mechanical methods, including better protection of ingredients from contamination, ease of cleaning, lower maintenance demands, and enhanced worker safety thanks to fewer moving parts.
The key difference between pneumatic and hydraulic/slurry conveying of solids is that the carrier gas will expand continuously as it goes along the pipe. The flow regime in the pipe (dense or dilute phase) will depend on the ratio of gas to solids and the characteristics of the particles. This workbook contains 2 sheets: Dilute Phase Properties
Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying is a popular method used to move solid materials in gas or air suspension using a high solid to air ratio and is a specialty of Sly Process Systems. In contrast, dilute phase pneumatic conveying uses a low solid to air ratio. VACUUM OPERATION
Jan 13, 2010 David Mills, PhD Two basic modes of flow are possible for materials in pipelines: dilute phase or suspension flow, and dense phase or nonsuspension flow. For dense-phase conveying there are two possibilities, dependent upon material properties. One is sliding bed flow, for materials that have good air retention, and the other is plug flow, for materials with good permeability.
The design of pneumatic conveying systems is usually car-ried out on the basis of scaling data obtained from the pneu-matic conveying of the material to be transported. If previ-ous experience of conveying a given material is not avail-able, data is generally derived for the purpose by conveying the material through a test facility.
In open end pipe line suspension flow, or dilute phase pneumatic conveying, proper particle velocity is critical to continuing productivity and product quality. Until recently, measurement of actual particle velocity within the pipe has not been practical outside the laboratory.
low velocity in a non-suspension mode, through all or part of the pipeline, it is referred to as dense phase conveying. Dilute phase Almost any material can be conveyed in dilute phase, suspension flow through a pipeline, regardless of the particle size, shape or density.

Figure 2. Dilute Phase Pneumatic Material Conveying -- image courtesy of VAC-U-MAX. A typical dilute phase, low pressure system will use a pick-up conveying air velocity of around 3,000 feet per minute at the beginning of the system, and about 6,000 feet per minute at the end.
Feb 09, 2014 Many many thanks for giving basic theory and some calculations on dilute phase pneumatic conveying. I will be obliged if you can send me theory and calc of dense phase pneumatic conveying systems. It is ur great effort that young engineers get an access to thie field and learn basics of pneumatic conveying systems. Thanks & Regards RITESH SAXENA
Dilute-phase conveying General dilute-phase conveying Fluidlift Fluid-Flex • Pressure and suction systems • Low capital investment • Constant material stream at the end of the conveying line • In the event of interrupted conveying, the conveying line will be completely discharged by blowing air through it Dense-phase conveying
This course outlines the distinguishing characteristics of dense and dilute phase transport. The design of dilute phase systems is dealt with in detail and the approach to design of dense phase systems is summarized. DILUTE-PHASE CONVEYING Dilute phase conveying is the most common used method of transporting materials.
Pneumatic conveying systems are widely used in manufacturing plants and process industries. They provide a practical method of bulk-solid material transport. A surprisingly wide variety of powders and granular material can be effectively moved from one location to another within the plant.
Jul 07, 2008 Pneumatic Conveying, Performance and Calculations! In vacuum- and pressure pneumatic conveying calculations, the used product properties are identical. The only difference is the mass flow, generated by a compressor in vacuum mode or pressure mode. Dilute phase preffered. Can we convey with max 1500m3/h airflow? Thank you. Evangelos
