Pneumatic Conveying

GEA has been manufacturing pneumatic conveying Systems for more than 40 years and has the experience to select the best system for each product and application.

GEA develops advanced powder handling solutions and high-quality components for the food, dairy, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. We have the know-how, experience and technology required, including a broad range of components, to configure the best powder conveying system for your product.

From non-friableand non-sanitary powders through to high-value, fragile pharmaceuticals, GEA can supply all the components and systems required.

Both standard and fragile powders can be transported using pneumatic conveying systems. These systems are normally divided into four types depending on whether the material is blown or vacuumed through the pipe, and if the solids-to-air ratio is high (dense phase) or low (dilute phase).

Our Dense Phase Conveying Systems are specifically well-suited for the conveying of agglomerated and fragile powders, using state-of-the-art technology to provide the most gentle and reliable means yet which leads to minimal breakdown of the powders and the thereby the small increase in powder bulk density.

Our system meets all hygiene standards for food and dairy applications. And, when necessary, thedense phase vacuum conveyingsystem can be atmospherically sealed, evacuated and filled with an inert gas as part of a modified atmosphere packing solution.

Easy to install and simple to use, clean and maintain, the low product velocity means minimal damage to the powder particles, and because only small quantities of air or gas are used, filters are small and easy to service.
