Abstract

Pneumatic conveying is defined as the transport of particulate solids by a gaseous stream through any flow channel. This operation has been used in process industries for a long time, just for transport of several kinds of particulate solids, such as lime, coal, polymer pellets, soda ash and granular chemicals etc. The different types of material chosen for the experiment are sago (Cycas revoluta), red lentil (Lens culinaris), black mustard (Sinapis nigra) and white mustard (Sinapis alba). The present work, deals with the experimental work of a slightly modified vertical pneumatic conveying system where the conveying line is converging from 0.0762 m to 0.0508 m. The modeling of the above setup is also carried out so as to compare the data received by theoretical and experimental calculations.
