Systems Design

Pneumatic Conveying Consultants provide written design calculations for the systems components and specifications for the required purchased equipment.  We keep an open line of communication with the contracting company's engineers and supervise the installation.  And we don't stop at supervision -- we'll also perform the start-up and optimization of your pneumatic conveying system.

High-Temperature Pneumatic Conveying:   PCC has recently accomplished two pneumatic conveying systems for conveyance of extremely hot materials, up to 900C.  These systems use atmospheres of nitrogen, helium, carbon monoxide and chlorine.  One system has been proven in use for over a year conveying 500C iron ore pellets.  For more information about how high-temperature pneumatic conveying can work in your application, contact us.

Development:  We will work with your company's research or testing department to help establish testing procedures and evaluate result.  We help you carry an idea through research, testing and final construction.   Our relationship in development exceeds 10 years with some companies.

Bid Evaluation

We aid you in writing the request-for-bids.  When the bids are received from potential suppliers, we provide written reports with comparisons and evaluations of the bids.  Included in our extensive evaluation are written recommendation for specifications of purchased items.

System Optimization

If further optimization is needed to your conveying system, we perform a job site inspection to the subject system including a in-depth study of the drawings, operating data, reports and design criteria.  A written report of the recommended corrective action along with calculations will be provided.  Complete supervision of the installation are performed to insure maximum optimization.

Trouble Shooting

We trouble shoot a system which is unsatisfactory or unreliable.  We inspect the manufactured equipment for compliance with the original drawings.  After in-depth study of the system's maintenance and performance records, we will determine the cause of the malfunction and offer our suggestions for the least expensive modifications to the system to correct the malfunction.

Expert Witness

We work with attorneys who are handling cases involving pneumatic conveying systems.  Aiding the attorneys understanding of the application of pneumatic conveying, properly analyze cases and evaluate the claims being made.   When a case is taken to court, a member of our team will testify as an expert witness in the field of pneumatic conveying systems.

Education & Training

Lecturers, seminars and training sessions have flexible itineraries that can be tailored to the conveying system in your plant.  We design unique courses based on your materials handling process.
