Pneumatic Conveying Systems for the Chemical and Minerals Industries

Coperion K-Tron develops dry bulk material handling systems for many of the world's leading chemical and mineral processors. These examples illustrate both large and small systems used in conveying chemical or mineral powders and granules.

Following are some sample drawings of pressure and vacuum conveying systems that Coperion K-Tron has developed to convey bulk materials for chemical and mineral process industries. They include pneumatic conveying systems for: Calcium Carbonate, Copper-Hydroxide, Talc, Bentonite Clay, Kaolin Clay, Soda Ash, Limestone, Sodium-Benzoate, Burnt Wood Chips, Clay/Carbon blend, Gypsum (NO DRAWINGS), Vanadium-Pentoxide, Dolocron, Dicalcium-Phosphate, Silica, TiO2 (NO DRAWINGS), Lead Oxide, Ammonia- Sulfate, Boric Acid.
