The conveying of material-laden air with fans involves determining the bulk density of the material to be conveyed. An appropriate amount of dilution air will be determined and a fan selected. High-velocity air is used to carry dirt, weld fumes, grain, plastic materials, wood waste and paper trim from a process to a collection point.
An added advantage to fan type systems is that the conveying air can be used to cool and aerate the materials being conveyed. This is useful in product transfer systems where additional cooling might otherwise be necessary. Powder and bulk solid materials can be passed through fans with the proper selection of materials for abrasion resistance.
