The efficient and reliable movement of materials is a critical aspect of many industries, including the grain, plastics, pet food, chemical, mining, and concrete industries. Pneumatic conveying systems have become more and more popular in these sectors due to their cost-effectiveness and efficiency. Still, they require high-quality pneumatic conveying parts to withstand the harsh conditions of material handling. PneuComponents offers a range of pneumatic conveying parts designed to meet the unique needs of each industry, ensuring reliable and safe material transport.

Grain Industry

Pneumatic conveying systems are favored in the grain industry for their efficiency and cost-effectiveness. However, to be effective, these systems require high-quality pneumatic conveying parts that can withstand the challenges of grain handling. Materials such as grains, seeds, and cereals are abrasive and can cause significant wear and tear on equipment, leading to breakdowns and downtime. In addition, the industry must maintain strict hygiene and sanitation standards to ensure the safety of the food products they produce.

PneuComponents offers galvanized steel pneumatic conveying bends, commonly known as elbows, which are specifically designed to meet the needs of grain storage and handling facilities. These elbows are made from high-quality steel coated with a zinc layer, which provides excellent protection against corrosion and rust. Galvanized steel elbows are resistant to damage from moisture and can withstand high humidity levels, making them a popular choice for such facilities. Additionally, the smooth interior surfaces of these bends help to provide a consistent and efficient flow of materials, reducing the risk of blockages and breakdowns in the system. Their easy-to-clean and maintain design also makes them an ideal choice for transporting food-grade materials.

Plastics Industry

The plastics industry faces several obstacles when conveying plastic pellets, powders, and resins. These materials can be abrasive and prone to degradation, creating unwanted byproducts such as angel hairs and streamers. Additionally, the plastics industry requires precise handling of its materials to maintain high product quality and consistency.

To address these difficulties, PneuComponents offers a range of pneumatic conveying parts specifically designed to meet the needs of the plastics industry. Aluminum and stainless steel elbows are both viable choices for conveying plastic materials due to their ability to provide a consistent and controlled flow of materials, reducing the risk of degradation and breakage. Durable and lightweight, these materials can withstand the wear and tear of constant use, though which one you use will likely come down to both budget and preference.

Aluminum is the top metal used in plastic conveying, especially plastic pellets. Aluminum is strong, durable, resistant to corrosion, and lighter and cheaper than stainless steel. Both aluminum and stainless steel offers excellent corrosion resistance and can withstand high temperatures and pressures. And while stainless steel elbows are generally more expensive than aluminum ones, their higher performance and longevity make them a worthwhile investment for some plastic manufacturers.

PneuComponents offers stainless steel and aluminum elbows and couplings in various sizes and configurations, allowing them to be customized to meet your needs. Furthermore, our stainless steel and aluminum elbows and couplings are easy to install and maintain, reducing downtime and increasing efficiency in pneumatic conveying systems. They can be quickly and easily connected to existing systems, minimizing disruptions to the production process.

Pet Food Industry

In the pet food industry, there are unique challenges when it comes to handling and conveying ingredients such as animal proteins, grains, and vitamins. These ingredients may have specific handling requirements, along with strict regulations and standards for food safety that must be followed. Blockages, material buildup, and product degradation are also all potential issues.

Similar to how PneuComponents can help address the challenges of the grain industry, our stainless steel elbows and couplings can help prevent blockages and material buildup of pet food ingredients by helping maintain a constant flow of materials within the pneumatic conveying system. This can help maintain the quality and consistency of the final product, which can be especially important when candling sensitive ingredients like vitamins and minerals. And because stainless steel elbows are highly resistant to corrosion, they can withstand the sometimes acidic preservatives used by the pet food industry, such as citric, phosphoric, and acetic acid.

Chemical Industry

The chemical industry requires specialized equipment that can withstand the harsh chemicals and high temperatures used in their processes. Spills, leaks, and other accidents are constant risks that must be kept in mind. At the same time, the industry requires equipment that is easy to use and maintain without sacrificing the safe and efficient transport of chemicals.

One of the key benefits PneuComponents’ products offer the chemical industry is their durability. We provide a range of stainless steel elbows and couplings designed to handle the extreme conditions of chemical transport. Durable and corrosion-resistant, stainless steel can withstand the harsh chemicals and high temperatures used in the chemical industry while also being easy to install, use, and maintain.

Mining Industry

The mining industry is one of the most demanding sectors when it comes to dry bulk handling. The transportation of raw materials such as coal, iron ore, and copper requires heavy-duty equipment that can safely withstand the wear and tear of constant use. Pneumatic conveying systems are becoming more popular thanks to their ability to safely, efficiently, and reliably transport large quantities of these heavy and abrasive materials.

Durability is one of the chief concerns of a pneumatic conveying system used in the mining industry. A system not designed to take on the constant bombardment of heavy, abrasive material can quickly become a costly safety hazard. That’s why PneuComponents offers the industry its robust and durable carbon steel bend solution, designed to withstand the impact of repeated use in mining operations while also being efficient. The smooth and streamlined design of our carbon steel elbows and couplings facilitates a constant and even flow of materials, helping to reduce the risk of blockages and downtime due to repairs. This efficiency helps to keep mining operations running smoothly, reducing costs and increasing productivity.

PneuComponents recognizes the importance of having durable, efficient, and safe pneumatic conveying parts to ensure the smooth operation of various industries. With a range of materials such as stainless steel, carbon steel, and aluminum with various sizes and configurations available, PneuComponents can customize pneumatic conveying parts to meet the specific needs of each industry.
