Colortronic North America Inc. has developed the CPP series of low-velocity, semi-dense phase conveyors for moving powdered materials such as additives.
The conveyor has a low ratio of compressed air to material, so the powder doesn't break up, but stays in a slug as it moves through the piping. Material degradation can happen when powder moves as a dust, Colortonic said.
The CPP moves large volumes of powder — up to 50 cubic feet per hour with the 1-inch model and 100 cubic feet per hour with the 2-inch models, at distances up to 200 feet.
Multiple units can be operated in sequence to reach a higher rate of conveying.
Colortronic is based in Flint, Mich.
