Pneumatic Conveying Elbows for the Heavy Industry

The very nature of heavy industry means that manufacturers’ pneumatic conveying systems go through heavy wear. It’s a challenge to fine-tune your system and ensure that all parts, especially pneumatic conveying elbows, are in constant working order. It’s clearly better to avoid unplanned downtime and the financial and resource cost it incurs. At Progressive Products, we aim to solve your challenges of frequent elbow wear, increase your efficiency and save you time and money.

Pneumatic Conveying Elbows for the Heavy Industry

Heavy Industry Companies Who Use
Pneumatic Conveying Systems

Heavy industry companies using pneumatic conveying systems often have large and heavy equipment and facilities, complicated infrastructure and numerous and complex processes.

There is a wide range of heavy industry companies who rely on pneumatic conveying systems in the manufacturing of their products. Typical manufacturing companies include:

Coal fired power plants • Mining • Cement • Paper mills

Metal recycling • Wastewater treatment plants • Composite products • Chemicals

Materials Used in Heavy Industry Pneumatic Conveying

While the materials used may differ from paper to wood, metal to cement dust, one thing many manufacturing companies have in common is the abrasive substance produced as a by-product of their high-intensity heat manufacturing processes and the materials they are conveying – fly ash. Fly ash is an extremely abrasive thick gray ash with the texture of a heavy residue, and it’s the main culprit in elbow wear and contamination in heavy industry.

Challenges Heavy Industries Have with Pneumatic Conveying Elbows

Abrasive Wear

Due to the nature of fly ash, the main challenge for heavy industries is abrasive wear on their pneumatic conveying elbows. It’s not unknown for a manufacturing company to replace elbows weekly – and sometimes even daily. Obviously, this is not ideal in terms of system downtime, cost and resource.
