Purple dense phase vessel for cement conveyingDense phase pneumatic conveyorAir-tec Bart One Dense Phase VesselBART-One Dense Phase Conveying Systems

The BART-ONE Dense Phase Conveying systems pneumatically convey products at high flow rates at around 25% of the speed of lean phase blow conveying, resulting in reduced pipe wear, less product stratification (keeping mixed products together) and reduced energy consumption.

  • Distances up to 70m.
  • Capacities from 3 to 20 ton/h.
  • Pressure up to 6 bar.
  • Vessel capacities of 80L, 150L, 300L, 600L & 900L.
  • 200/250 mm Diameter Inlet Valve.
  • Transport pipeline outlet options 2”, 3”, 4”, 5” & 6” diameter.
  • Available in ATEX Zone 22, ATEX Zone 21, Carbon steel, Stainless steel 304 or 316.

All BART-One Dense Phase Systems are equipped with an advanced control system to manage the introduced air.

There is also a High Temperature (HT) version for the transport of materials up to 250° C such as ashes and slag. Bart-One vessels are certified according to the PED – European Pressure Equipment Directive and are certified to Australian Standard for Pressure Vessels.

TPA Dense phase conveyorAir-tec TPA Dense Phase VesselTPA Dense Phase Conveying System

The TPA Dense Phase Conveying System is a first class solution for abrasive, fragile and difficult to convey materials and includes an advanced electronic control system to enable a larger flexibility of application and a better control of the transport cycle as well as inbuilt selectable control for conveying to many destinations.

  • Distances up to and beyond 500m.
  • Capacities up to 100 ton/h.
  • Pressure up to 7 bar.
  • Vessel capacities from 80L to 4,428L.
  • 200/250/300 mm Diameter Inlet Valve.
  • Transport pipeline outlet options 2”, 3”, 4”, 5”, 6” & 8” diameter.
  • Available in ATEX Zone 22, ATEX Zone 21, Carbon steel, Stainless steel 304 or 316.

With the use of boosters, the TPA system guarantees the integrity of the materials during transport without stratification (keeps mixed products such as PVC or cementitious blends together). TPA vessels are certified according to the PED – European Pressure Equipment Directive and Australian Standards and all come with Australian Pressure Vessel Certification. There is also a High Temperature (HT) version for the transport of materials up to 250° C such as ashes and slag.

The TPA Dense Phase Systems allow three types of conveying modes depending on the required method of transport:

Standard – The line of transport is emptied and purged after each conveying cycle.

Full pipeline – Material is conveyed in a full pipeline operation. This permits air and energy saving compared with the conventional method. The TPA full pipeline transporters are used to move fragile materials as the material flow is constant. The system starts and stops with a full line and can have automation control to purge if required.

Full pipeline continuous – The use of two TPA full pipeline transporters connected allows constant conveying of the material without a pause for loading time. The vessels operate in tandem where one vessel conveys the material while the other loads achieving large flow rates that can exceed 100 tons/h.

Air boosters for pneumatic conveyingAir boosters

When installed along the conveying line the air boosters add the optimal amount of additional air at the optimal locations along the line.

  • Reduces wear during pneumatic conveying.
  • Controls conveying flow rate.
  • Reduces overall pneumatic conveying air consumption.
  • Maintains aeration of product in the pipeline.

Air Boosters act like many helping hands along the conveying pipeline to help the product move along.
