Grain application—How it works

Self-Contained Grain Whisper Loaders give you the flexibility to transfer grains from a bag, super sack, or box to the mill, then to the grist case and the mash tun/brew house.

Fragile Products

Our products use speed control as well as a boxed inlet system that helps deduce impact and prevent a breakdown of the materials.

Expand

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.

Outline

Dust control

Our systems are equipped with primary and secondary filtration systems, and built with high efficiency PTFE filter media that ensure a dust-free environment.

300-self-cleaning-blower-filter
Self-Cleaning Filters

Self-Cleaning “Central Filters” are used when receivers do not include primary filtration, or when material is hazardous if escaped from the system. Central Filters include automatic pulse filter cartridge cleaning, self dumping receiver, standard wall or floor frame mount bracket, dust retainer skirt. Choose 3, 4, or 7 pleated filter cartridges.

300-portable-hopper-open
Portable Hoppers

Pneu-Con's Portable Hoppers are optionally available as an accessory for your Central-Powered Grain Conveying System. Other options and accessories are available including scale hoppers, scale platforms, load cells, and more.

300-static-blower-protection-filter
Static Filters

Static Bower Protection Filters are used when the primary filtration is incorporated into each of the powder receivers. Static Protection Filters are furnished with one (1) to three (3) filters. Standard filter enclosures are constructed from aluminum, and feature an easy-open cover for quick filter removal and replacement.

300-vacuum-breaker-valve
Vacuum Breaker Valve

Vacuum Breaker Valves permit automatic switching from vacuum (conveying mode) to atmospheric air. This enables the blower to run continuously, preventing it from having to start and stop at the end of every conveying cycle. Pneu-Con's Vacuum Breaker Valves are solenoid controlled and pneumatically operated.

Frequently asked questions

pneucon_seperator
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.
