Dry dairy products, a market with unique characteristics and challenges.
Solutions For Processing Dry Dairy Products
Pneumatic conveying systems have become the best choice for dry dairy product processing because they are superior at moving sticky, lightweight and fluffy powders.
Designing solutions for handling dry dairy requires specialized knowledge and expertise to solve contamination and quality issues.
Body & Materials
100% seal-welded body, in aluminum or stainless steel with smooth internal finish, boxed-tangential material inlet. Material Pick-Up: Adjustable Aluminum Pick-up Lance & 15-ft flexible hose.
Standard vacuum source is a durable, long-life brush-type motor. Tangential discharge.
Flat-Disc polyester felt filter with food-grade rubber gasket (seals cover to body).
System & Controls
Pneu-Vue PLC-based Control Panel, NEMA 1 Hinged Enclosure. Standard voltage 120VAC/10/60Hz. Mounting flange and 6”discharge spout.
Spun aluminum cover assembly with motor-mount tabs and integral air-blast pipe with Vibra-Pulse automatic filter-cleaning system.
Challenges and Solutions
Dairy plants require sanitary production environments. Powdered milk, whey, casein and baby formula are often batched or blended.
Product movement can be dangerous and tedious. We offer portable feed bin hoppers that allow you to move your products safely and efficiently.
Our products use speed control as well as a boxed inlet system that helps deduce impact and prevent a breakdown of the materials.
Limited Floor Space
Not every factory has the same amount of space. Our systems are built to work in compact layouts with specially placed side access filters for convenience.
Our systems are equipped with primary and secondary filtration systems, and built with high efficiency PTFE filter media that ensure a dust-free environment.

Frequently asked questions
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.
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.
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.
