Key Features

Pneu-Con can provide you with a central-powered vacuum conveying system expansion or upgrade, or to establish a maintenance program.

  • component


    They can either be centrally located vacuum-based or a pressure-based blower package.

  • startup-icon-small


    Central-powered systems are set up using air & material conveying lines.

  • expand


    They can be retrofitted with material loaders, receivers and/or surge hoppers.

  • control-panel


    A main control panel gives you the ability to keep your machinery running smoothly.

Central-powered system - how it works

Central-powered systems can be customized to accommodate growing production requirements with
many options available to handle your specific conveying needs.

How to enhance your system

Central-powered vacuum conveying systems can be as simple as systems “powered” from a single source blower package, or by multiple dedicated blower packages for large systems

  • wind (2)

    Blower package

    Provides a simple “up & over” system for merely transferring product from point A to point B. By adding a few receivers and ancillary equipment to the system, you can dispense bulk material to several process-specific stations.

  • control-panel (1)

    Control Panel

    Central-powered conveying systems can be supplied with a main system control panel and/or auxiliary panels including motor disconnect panel(s), silo and/or station-select panels, or alarm panels.

  • chronometer


    CP Systems operate on a BATCH principle. The duration of independently adjusted timers control the conveying and dump cycles for each station within the system.

  • flow


    A full range of equipment is available to enhance your central-powered conveying system to perform many discrete operations and sub-operations within the material-process flow.

Frequently asked questions

Why choose a pneumatic conveying system over a mechanical conveying system?

Some of the advantages of choosing a pneumatic conveying system over a mechanical transport system are adaptability to virtually any site configuration, ease of maintenance, and faster ROI. Pneumatic conveying systems can also move dry bulk materials farther than conventional mechanical systems, at a lower cost.

How much does a pneumatic conveying system cost?

Pricing for a pneumatic conveying system varies from project to project, and from application to application. We treat every customer’s project as a custom design, but can often put together a bulk material handling solution using standard parts. This approach can save the customer time and reduce overall costs. We can also design and engineer a complete custom pneumatic conveying system based on a customer’s specifications, and for those bulk material applications which have unique requirements.

Which services does Pneu-Con offer?

Pneu-Con can design and engineer any type of bulk material handling system for most applications. We engineer and manufacture pneumatic conveying systems and can integrate our systems with components and controls from other manufacturers.

Our full range of services includes market research, design, engineering, integration, commissioning, startup, repair, parts, maintenance and staff training of complete bulk material processing systems and solutions.
