1. Basis for the Calculation Method The calculations for the design of a dilute phase conveying sys-tem are based on determining the pressure drop that is gener-ated in the system due to the flow of gas and solids. ZENZ and OTHMER state that this pressure drop, for both dilute and dense phase conveying, is composed of six effective forces:

Dilute phase uses both regenerative and PD blowers. The term dilute phase notates a higher ratio of air to product mix during conveying. The exact blend of air to product is determined by calculations that are derived from formulas that depend on pneumatic conveying factors specific to the material that is to be conveyed.

Apr 11, 2016· Compared with dilute phase, the dense phase regime can be more limiting and sensitive to variations in air flow and/or conveying rate. For some materials, a reduction in solids flow rate can shift the operating point into the unstable zone, thereby causing severe instability (line vibrations and pressure spikes).
