To put it in a few words: pneumatic conveying is the simplest way to transport dry materials by using a low-cost efficient equipment.
The process of a pneumatic conveying system is simple and basically consists of a pressure vessel that pumps the materials (powders, granules or other dry bulk materials) via enclosed horizontal or vertical pipelines (conveying lines) by using compressed air. The key factor is to achieve it in the most efficient and reliable way. One of Kopar’s main advantages here is the fact we use low velocity, meaning a less wear of the pipelines.
BEST way to transport
From one single component to a complete system for dry bulk material handling, Kopar designs, and manufactures solutions for the pneumatic transfer of solids materials in several processes. Services include complete systems engineering, testing, start-up service, spare parts and field service.
In order to start designing a proper pneumatic conveying solution for your process it’s a must to know the properties of the material to be conveyed (material, density, moisture and particle size); the capacity of the require system; and the distance to be transported.

Kopar’s pneumatic conveying systems can easily handle a wide range of different materials such as calcium carbonate, copper concentrate, talc, bentonite clay, kaolin clay, soda ash, limestone, sodium-benzoate, clay/carbon blend, gypsum, vanadium-pentoxide,
- From 1 t/h up to 150 t/h are easily conveyed with one line. More capacity is easily achievable by using parallels lines.
Pressureused is conveying is between 1 to 2 bars depending ofthe operation and of the material properties.
- Conveying distances up to 1.000 m without intermediate stations are possible.
- Fully automated operation due to electronic control.
- The pneumatic system is always designed to meet the customer's needs.
In the design of pipelines requirements of the specific application are taken into account. The most appropriate materials are
selecetedfor pipeline components (Steel / Cast Basalt / Aluminium Oxide).
- Receiving silos, filters and unloading stations after the conveying process can also be included in the scope of supply.
Generally speaking, any dry bulk or small particle material can be conveyed using a pneumatic system. Materials that are not suitable for pneumatic conveying are the ones with large particle size, with high bulk density, and the extremely sticky materials, since they tend to build a coating on material contact surfaces and can eventually block the conveying line. It’s very important that particles are fine enough and without big lumps (90% smaller than 1mm), and moisture must be lower than 5%.
The conveying can take place as a multi-line-conveying-solution, where each pneumatic conveyor feeds the material to own pipeline. The other way of transporting is with single-line-conveying-solution meaning that several pneumatic conveyors are connected to the same conveying line. The single-line-solution is possible when transported capacities are rather small. The advantage of that kind of system is the saving in pipelines and in compressed air.

advantages of kopar pneumatic CONVEYING systems
Pneumatic conveying offers several advantages compared to other methods of moving materials. The pneumatic conveying equipment is usually light and easy to install even in old structures. It uses less space than a comparable mechanical conveyor for example. The system can be configured with bends to fit around existing equipment, giving it much more flexibility than a mechanical conveyor.
INCREASED RETURN ON investment
Increased ROI and low operating costs are the results of our long experience and great design.
Easy operation based on simple system configuration and full automation utilizing local logic units or plant DCS systems.
The use of Pulse Dense Phase transporting assures low wear thanks to the low conveying velocity.
Special coatings and wear-resistant parts reduce the need for replacement parts and lengthen the lifetime of the system.
Pneumatic conveying systems are clean and dust-free thus meeting today's environmental demands.
lower operating costs
Maintenance friendly designs with a minimal number of moving parts mean less maintenance and lower operating costs.
EXperience and reliability
The development of our products and systems is based on hands-on experience and practice in hundreds of locations worldwide.
EQUIPMENT & ACCESSORIES
Elbows, pipes, and COMPONENTS
Elbow and pipes are made of steel and can be reinforced by cast basalt or aluminum oxide.
Reinforcement reduces the need for replacement parts and lengthens the life of the system when used for very abrasive and difficult materials.
The best available components including valves, switches, and other components are used in Kopar systems in order to ensure the best quality and optimal performance of the conveying process.
