In-Plant Transfer

Convey Anywhere – Noise Control – Superior Dust Control

Pneumatic conveying is ideal for in-plant transfer due to flexibility in routing – we can convey material to places others can’t. It is also ideally suited for dust control because it’s a closed system with few ventilation points.

Routing is very flexible and less moving parts means less breakdowns. A wide variety of dry bulk materials can be conveyed this way with lower maintenance, power, and labor costs.

For compliance purposes, we can attenuate noise created by indoor blower packages by design or by including a sound enclosure.

There are many advantages to pneumatic transfer compared to mechanical conveying:

  • Closed system conveying reduces cross-contamination
  • Routing flexibility
  • Easy dust control
  • Can have several pick-up points and routes controlled with valves
  • Wide variety of materials can be conveyed
  • Ease of automation and control

We have designed systems for thousands of materialsCall an experienced engineer at US Systems, we’ll answer your questions and solve your problems. It’s what we do!
