Question: How can I prevent bridging in a dilute phase pneumatic conveying system?
Keywords: pneumatic,conveying,dilute,phase,problems,troubleshoot,troublshooting,bridging,prevent,prevention
Answer: Manufacturers of these systems recommend bin agitation or blowing air into the top of the feeding bin. These methods can prevent fine particle from bridging near the rotarary valve. Two types of particles that are especially prone to bridging include titanium dioxide and calcined kaolin clay.
