The Pulseline PTA-PL mobile pneumatic conveying system from Gericke USA (Somerset, NJ), allows the company's dense phase pneumatic conveying technology to be rolled and connected to the discharge of a tanker, railcar or other bulk transporter for safe, smooth, dust-free material transfer. Developed to automatically transfer powders and other bulk materials from receiving outside the plant to storage inside the plant, the mobile Pulseline PTA-PL integrates a proprietary controller, pneumatic safety valve, conveyor piping and associated connections on a rolling platform for easy movement and setup. When connected, the self-contained system unloads the material quickly and efficiently while minimizing wear on the components.
Ideal for conveying abrasive, fragile, and sensitive materials, the mobile docking station transfers the materials as a pulsed plug at low velocities to safeguard particle integrity and maintain the distribution of mixed products. The energy-efficient conveyor transfers both vertically to reach silo hatches and horizontally up to 500 meters, or greater using pulsed secondary air injections along the pipe.
