### Flow regime chart for pneumatic conveying

Dense phase pneumatic conveying is preferred by industry over dilute phase flow due to its advantages. Models enabling to calculate pressure drop are worthless for a designer if he is unable to predict in advance the mode of conveying. Therefore, this research is focused on developing a new flow regime chart.

### Pneumatic Conveying of Solids

Dilute Phase – Strand Flow Gas Velocity v = 3,000 – 5,000 ft/min Solids Velocity c = 2,000 – 4,000 ft/min Dense Phase Systems Dense phase transfer generally occurs in one of two basic forms, plug flow or moving bed (dune) flow. During plug flow, solids fully fill the conveying line and move along with gaps of air between individual plugs.

For the dilute phase conveying of the cement, a minimum conveying air velocity of 11 m/s is required, but for the potassium sulphate, it is about 14 m/s. At higher solids loading ratios the minimum conveying air velocity for the cement decreases until it is about 3 m/s at a solids loading ratio of about 70.

### MDSJ

Conveying materials that are highly abrasive, such as metal shavings and silica sand, can cause wear of the conveying line. The term dilution phase refers to a higher proportion of air and product mixture mixing during transport. It is determined by calculations derived from formulas that depend on pneumatic conveying factors.

### Dilute Phase Conveying System

In the majority of dilute phase conveying systems, where a large volume of air is required at a relatively low pressure, positive-displacement blowers are generally used. For this type of application, they are not usually cooled and so the air, after compression, can be at a fairly high temperature.

### Dilute Phase

In dilute phase conveying, with particles in suspension in the air, the mechanism of conveying is one of drag force. The velocity of the particles, therefore, will be lower than that of the conveying air. It is a difficult and complex process to measure particle velocity, and apart from research purposes, particle velocity is rarely measured.
