Operators of silos or pneumatic conveying systems are often aware of the effects of excessive moisture. Storing dry bulk materials in silos or transporting powders in pneumatic conveying systems can create problems. (RH) or Relative Humidity levels are difficult to counteract as they change throughout the day and season.
Pneumatic conveying is also affected by the increased air pressure, which increases the likelihood of condensation. The moisture causes many ingredients and powder to stick together, resulting in these products building up in conveying lines.
Thomas Conveyor and Equipment uses multiple versions of dehumidifier silo systems to keep bulk powders dry and silos running efficient. Contact us today for more information!
