The pneumatic conveying system is specially treated to transfer a highly corrosive, granular material and uses integrated automation to minimize human exposure to the material and to optimize process efficiency with the upstream bulk bag unloading system. To reduce wear, the system is constructed of specially coated stainless steel tubing and components. Process-critical components and valves are Teflon® coated. Pneumatically conveyed materials is transferred to the downstream wetting process in batches, based on calls from weigh system sensors. Total system capacity exceeds 9,500 pounds per hour.
