Selecting conveyor systems that are flexible, minimize waste, and ensure the integrity of transported products is vital for optimizing production efficiency. The market offers a diverse array of conveyor systems for integration into your production line, each with its unique features. Choosing the right solution is critical to prevent contamination of products and streamline the production process. While traditional conveyor belts efficiently move large quantities of powders, granules, and solids, they have drawbacks such as requiring significant installation space, exposing products to external contaminants, and being challenging and expensive to sanitize. Pneumatic conveyors provide an alternative solution, utilizing a closed airtight system to prevent product dispersion and contamination risks. This article delves into the working mechanisms of pneumatic conveyors, offering insights into their advantages, such as low maintenance costs, reduced contamination risks, prevention of product
