Clinker Bulk Pneumatic Transport system


Several particle size ranges available (Standard: 2-12 mm)

Principle :

This transport system TPV, is installed at the outlet of the sampling system and is composed of a sending station, a set of stainless steel pipes and bends connected with leak proof clamps and a receiving station composed of a cyclone and a vacuum pump.

It enables bulk clinker sample conveying on long distances and with an important height difference.

During a transport cycle, clinker falls through the chute underneath the sampler and is then transported towards the cyclone thanks to a vacuum pump connected to a filter.
An air inlet (equipped with a flap in case of several transport lines), located close to the sending station, allows the entrance of the required ambiant air for the transport.

The receiving cyclone is sealed with an airtight slide gate and is equipped with a pneumatic vibrator.
