National Bulk Equipment, Inc: Pneumatic conveying system

National Bulk Equipment’s pneumatic conveying system is specially treated to transfer highly-corrosive, granular material, uses integrated automation to minimize human exposure to the material, and optimizes process efficiency with its upstream bulk bag unloading system.

To reduce wear, the pneumatic conveying system is constructed of specially-coated stainless steel tubing and components. Process-critical components and valves are Teflon coated. Pneumatically conveyed material is transferred to the downstream wetting process, in batches, based on calls from weigh system sensors. Total system capacity exceeds 9,500 lbs./hr.

NBE’s integrated automation centralizes system control, communication, monitoring, and reporting using NEMA 12, dust-tight enclosures, and a single, UL listed HMI, designed and built by NBE. Operator exposure to caustic material has been eliminated, and operator physical ergonomics have been optimized as a result of rigorous NBE risk assessment procedures.
