Pneumatic feeding station/powder pump

A Pneumatic feeding station – or a powderpump, as some people like to call it – is the pump in a pneumatic transport system for powder and granulate products and is mainly used in connection with high pressure transport systems (1-4 bars gauge pressure). This transport method is used for large capacities and long distances and for difficult and heavy (not always fluidizing) products. The main part is a pressure tank that has been approved in accordance with the pressure equipment directive.

Simple and compact design that needs only a minimum of maintenance

The Pneumatic feeding station with simple, compact design has only one movable part and therefore requires only a minimum of maintenance. It can be installed in ATEX zones and can withstand the high temperatures that are a part of many processes.

At the top the container has a stop-valve where the product is poured in. The valve provides a leakage-proof stop and requires only little maintenance. At the bottom of the container is a flange that makes it possible to dismantle the bottom section for inspection and cleaning. The ejector is also to be found in the bottom section; it mixes air and product.

During the running-in procedure the respective distribution valves are adjusted and locked in terms of air, and during production all functions are controlled and monitored by the control system.
