With Progressive Products, your challenges with pneumatic conveying elbows have various solutions. We want you to have the elbows that are right for your needs, and we’ll talk through your requirements with you in detail before we make a recommendation.
As a general rule, long radius elbows are better for the grain industry because there’s less impact than there is from using a short radius elbow. This is because the angles of long radius elbows are smoother and more elongated so the grain can follow the path of least resistance and won’t break up as much.
Ceram-Back® and Flat-back elbows are normally the best elbows to use for pneumatic conveying in the grain industry. It’s best to avoid hollow-back elbows as they are designed to pack bulk materials in the back, and replaceable-back elbows as you do not want material to get lodged, either of which could cause mold or rotting of grains.
Additionally, we can provide abrasion-resistant, robust yet light coatings and tile-linings to help protect the chutes and diverters that are commonly found in grain handling. These coatings and tile-linings can be custom engineered to precision tolerances and will extend the life of your equipment, reduce maintenance costs, and minimize downtime.
With Progressive Product elbows you can save time and money because we’ll help you get the proper application with the proper solution for best results.
