Question: What are some common problems associated with dense phase pneumatic conveying?
Keywords: dense,phase,pneumatic,conveying,problem,troubleshoot,troubleshooting
Answer: Dense phase pneumatic conveying typically experiences one common problem from system to system: plugging in the line due to a malfunctioning booster valve. Dense phase systems require these booster systems to introduce new, pressurized air. These booster are nearly always accompanied by a check valve. If the check valve becomes stuck, the product is allowed to plug the line.
