Handling powder has unique challenges which require precise
equipment designs and filtration systems.

A variety of characteristics and particle sizes

For dry bulk material applications which involve powder conveying, many factors must be considered when designing a powder conveying system. An effective powder conveying system should maximize powder transfer while minimizing dust and escaped or lost powder material.

Key Features of this industry

Preventing loss of valuable product is a challenge in applications involving fine or powdery material,
such as in pharmaceutical or chemical applications.

  • fabric

    Body & Materials

    Powder applications can be constructed using a variety of materials such as stainless steel, carbon steel, and aluminum.

  • packaging


    Our systems are equipped to last and come with wear resistant material inlets for abrasive powders, ensuring your machinery remains damage-free.

  • dust


    Clean, dust-free enclosed systems. Pleated cartridge filters to maximize filter area and system functionality.

  • padlock

    Explosion Protection

    Our specially designed systems can handle your needs when it comes to dangerous or controlled substances and powders.

Explosion proof expertise


Some products require an extra level of care and safety, and Pneu-Con has a distinct expertise when it comes to explosion proof systems.

We offer a unique solution thanks to our ability to limit the flow of materials, thus creating a very low cost solution to deal with this challenge.

This technology does not apply to all materials but most notably it centers around certain powders and sugar, as mixing different elements can lead to them becoming dangerous and explosive.


Challenges and Solutions

No powder material is too challenging for our pneumatic conveying system experts.


Portability requirements

Product movement can be dangerous and tedious. We offer portable feed bin hoppers that allow you to move your products safely and efficiently.


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.


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.


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.

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.
