Abstract


Pneumatic conveying in the form of strands of particles sliding along the bottom of the pipe is favorable in respect of protecting the material and shows a low energy consumption. This state of pneumatic conveying occurs near the non-steady states of plug flow and conveying in the form of dunes. Therefore, the knowledge of pressure drop is important for a reliable operation. Force and mass balances result in a relationship between dimensionless groups for calculating the pressure drop in strand-type pneumatic conveying. A steady state diagram for pneumatic conveying was developed on the basis of stability considerations.
