FEEDING + CONVEYING


Our experts select the right method to consistently transfer or feed your product by learning about the goals and needs of your specific application. Then, we apply the best technology to the process, whether it’s our own equipment or an integrated piece.

SMOOT

Pneumatic Conveying

Efficiency affects your bottom line. Whether it’s Dilute Phase or Dense Phase, conveying materials is as much an art as it is a science. Through Magnum Systems’ long history with the Smoot brand of equipment and systems, our experts understand the process from beginning to end.

DILUTE PHASE
Our dilute phase systems transfer your material at higher speeds and lower product-to-air ratios than dense phase systems of similar rates and distances. Lower capital investment than a dense phase system and worry-free operation make dilute phase the most common choice for handling material from granola, green coffee beans, and potato flakes to bone fragments and wood chips.

DENSE PHASE
Highly abrasive or very fragile material can require lower speed conveyance and a higher product-to-air ratio. Our patented bypass valve eliminates the need for compressed air line booters.
