How Pressure Conveying Works

With pressure conveying, materials are moved through a totally enclosed pipeline using pressurized air generated by a pressure differential blower, pushing the material to its destination.

Pressure conveying is extremely efficient because material can be moved in larger quantities and at longer distances.
