Central-Powered Conveying Systems

Complete vacuum conveying systems for moving dry bulk material

Pneu-Con's central-powered vacuum conveying systems (CP) are a complete vacuum conveying system. Typically comprised of a few basic components, central-powered vacuum conveying systems may include a multitude of specialized items to handle various processes and bulk materials. From a basic single-station system to a complex multiple-station system with 150 stations or more, Pneu-Con can provide you with a complete CP vacuum conveying system designed to meet your requirements.

From Simple to Complex Systems

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

Central-Powered Pneumatic Conveying Systems

CP Vacuum Conveying Systems consist of four (4) major components:

    1. Centrally located Vacuum-based or Pressure-based Blower Package
    2. Air & Material Conveying Lines
    3. Material Loaders, Receivers, and/or Surge Hoppers
    4. Main Control Panel

Pneu-Con can provide you with a central-powered vacuum conveying system expansion or upgrade, or to establish a maintenance program. Professional Installation including electrical power and compressed-air lines can be provided.

Blower Packages & System Options / Enhancements

Blower Packages

The heart of a central-powered conveying system is the blower package (power source). Central-powered conveying systems can be configured for either:

  • Vacuum (Product is “pulled” from the furthest conveying point towards the blower) or
  • Pressure (Product is “pushed” from the blower to the furthest conveying point) operation.

Larger CP conveying systems with multiple material sources may require dedicated blowers to facilitate proper flow and/or enable bulk material segregation.

Silo loading and unloading systems will have a dedicated blower package to “push” or “pull” material from rail cars or bulk trucks to one or more silos. Secondary blower packages (part of a CP System) will then transfer product from the silo take-off box to designated receivers within the plant or processing facility.

System Options & Enhancements

A blower package coupled with a receiver 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.

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. These panels require field wiring to integrate with all stations.

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.

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.
