Pneumatic Conveying Design Guide, 3rd Edition is divided into three essential parts, system and components, system design, and system operation, providing both essential foundational knowledge and practical information to help users understand, design, and build suitable systems. All aspects of the pneumatic conveying system are covered, including the type of materials used, conveying distance, system constraints, including feeding and discharging, health and safety requirements, and the need for continuous or batch conveying. This new edition also covers information on the other conveying systems available and compares them to this method. The existing content is brought up-to-date and the references are expanded and updated. This guide is an almost encyclopedic coverage of pneumatic conveying and as such is an essential text for both designers and users of pneumatic conveying systems. Each aspect of the subject is discussed from basic principles to support those new to, or learning about, this versatile technique. Highly practical with usable and unbiased information to enable you to choose, design and build suitable systems with a high degree of confidence New edition compares alternative conveying systems including pneumatic capsule conveying systems, and covers conveying of wet materials Contains updated information on by-pass systems, and will introduce you to simulation software

The Pneumatic Conveying Design Guide will be of use to both designers and users of pneumatic conveying systems. Each aspect of the subject is discussed from basic principles to support those new to, or learning about, this versatile technique. The Guide includes detailed data and information on the conveying characteristics of a number of materials embracing a wide range of properties. The data can be used to design pneumatic conveying systems for the particular materials, using logic diagrams for design procedures, and scaling parameters for the conveying line configuration. Where pneumatic conveyors already exist, the improvement of their performance is considered, based on strategies for optimizing and up-rating, and the extending of systems or adapting them for a change of material is also considered. All aspects of the pneumatic conveying system are considered, such as the type of material used, conveying distance, system constraints including feeding and discharging, health and safety requirements, and the need for continuous or batch conveying. * Highly practical, enabling suppliers and users to choose, design, and build suitable systems with a high degree of confidence * Health and safety requirements taken into consideration in the safe conveying methods described in this book * Practical application combined with background theory makes this an excellent resource for those learning about the topic

Pneumatic conveying systems offer enormous advantages: flexibility in plant layout, automatic operation, easy control and monitoring, and the ability to handle diverse materials, especially dangerous, toxic, or explosive materials. The Handbook of Pneumatic Conveying Engineering provides the most complete, comprehensive reference on all types and sizes of systems, considering their selection, design, maintenance, and optimization. It offers practical guidelines, diagrams, and procedures to assist with plant maintenance, operation, and control. With well over fifty years of combined experience in the field, the authors promote practical, valuable approaches to test, evaluate, and correct both old and newly constructed systems. They include abundant checklists and approaches for preventing component wear, material degradation, and operating dilemmas and suggest lists of alternate materials and components to use if erosion does occur. Comparing various conveying system types, components, and flow mechanisms, the book explains the function of material flow, recommends conveying air velocity for different types of materials, and examines the conveying characteristics of a broad array of materials with emphasis on their impact on system performance. Brimming with invaluable checklists, models, guidelines, diagrams, and illustrations, the Handbook of Pneumatic Conveying Engineering is simply the most authoritative guide to pneumatic conveying available and a critical tool for your everyday work.

Abbreviated Guide: Pneumatic Conveying Design Guide describes the selection, design, and specification of conventional pneumatic conveying systems. The design procedure uses previous test data on the materials to be conveyed. The book also discusses system economics, operating costs, the choice of appropriate components or systems, system control, and system flexibility. The design system involves the type of conveying system for installation, the pipeline parameters, and also the plant components. System selection covers the properties of the material to be conveyed, plant layout, material properties, as well as whether an open system or a closed system is more appropriate. In pipeline design, the engineer should consider the bore of the pipeline, the air requirements in terms of delivery pressure and volumetric flow rate. Based on this data, he can determine the rating of the air mover to achieve the optimal material flow rate. From the pipeline design study, the engineer can then evaluate all the necessary operating parameters at each pipeline bore to identify plant component specifications. He can then compute for the costs of the components and operating costs of the system. Engineers, technicians, and investigators involved in industrial pneumatic conveyance will find the book highly useful.

When the four of us decided to collaborate to write this book on pneumatic conveying, there were two aspects which were of some concern. Firstly, how could four people, who liveon four different continents, write a book on a fairly complex subject with such wide lines of communications? Secondly, there was the problem that two of the authors are chemical engineers.It has been noted that the majority of chemical engineers who work in the field of pneumatic conveying research have spent most of their time considering flow in vertical pipes. As such, there was some concern that the book might be biased towards vertical pneumatic conveying and that the horizontal aspects (which are clearly the most difficult!) would be somewhat neglected. We hope that you, as the reader, are going to be satisfied with the fact that you have a truly international dissertation on pneumatic conveying and, also, that there is an even spread between the theoretical and practical aspects of pneumatic conveying technology.
