The positive pressure conveying system is a widely used material conveying equipment in the automatic conveying of seamless pipe, which has the characteristics of simple structure, flexible arrangement, large conveying capacity, long conveying distance, reliable operation and high degree of automation, and effectively improves the efficiency of industrial production. The following shares the working principle and process of positive pressure conveying system.

The working principle of positive pressure conveying system.

It is composed of Roots blower, manual insert valve, rotary feeding device, conveying pipeline, pipeline splitting valve, as well as storage bin, bin top dust removal device, electrical control system and related auxiliary settings.

Positive pressure conveying equipment is the use of less than 0.1MPa gas (usually using air or nitrogen) to blow the material to the designated location at a high speed, the gas-solid ratio is generally 1:10. The initial speed of the system is generally greater than 12m/s, the end speed can be as high as 35m/s, the end pressure is close to atmospheric pressure, the power is generally provided by the Roots fan, through the valve control can achieve multi-point feed multi-point discharge. Sometimes it can also be used in combination with negative pressure vacuum conveying to meet special requirements.

The positive pressure conveying system is usually powered by a Roots blower, which generates a high pressure columnar air flow when the system is in operation. The high pressure column air flow through the injection pump, the internal negative pressure, so that the rotating feeder supply down the material is timely sucked into the injection mouth of the injector. The material is transported to the storage bin by the conveying pipe; then the bin top dust collector installed on the top of the storage bin makes the material and the conveying airflow to be connected. Then the dust collector installed on the top of the storage bin separates the material from the conveying airflow, and the remaining airflow is discharged outdoors in time to avoid too much dust from the site.

The positive pressure conveying system can arrange the conveying pipeline according to the specific terrain, and the material will not be damp, which is beneficial to the production and environmental protection. The equipment is widely used in electric power, metallurgy, petrochemical industry, plastics, building materials and other industries.

Process of positive pressure conveying system.

1、Feeding stage

The sealing valve, airtight valve and exhaust valve are opened and the rest of the valves are closed, the materials fall into the silo pump by gravity, and when the time reaches the set value, the sealing valve, airtight valve and exhaust valve are closed. When the time reaches the set value, the sealing valve, airtight valve and exhaust valve close, completing the process of feeding once.

2、Fluidization stage

The air inlet valve opens automatically, the compressed air enters the silo pump, and after diffusion, it passes through the fluidized bed, while the material is fully fluidized, the air pressure inside the silo pump will rise gradually.

3、Conveying stage

When the transmitter pressure is large to a certain value, the pressure transmitter sends a signal, the discharge valve opens automatically, the fluidization of the material on the fluidized bed is strengthened, and the conveying starts, when the material in the bin pump gradually When the material in the bin pump gradually decreases, the pressure display gradually falls back. In this process, the material on the fluidized bed is always in the state of fluidization and conveying at the same time.

4、Blowing stage

When the material in the pump is transported, the pressure drops to the empty pipe resistance, the inlet valve is closed, interval a certain time, the discharge valve is closed, the pressure increase continues for 3-5s of time, clean the pipeline, open the inlet valve. Open the inlet valve, so as to complete a conveying cycle.

Of course, through a period of operation, the pipeline conveying technology used in the workshop has basically achieved the design purpose. However, there are still some problems, clogging and wear are two common headaches for customers of seamless pipe conveying systems. Clogging and wear are two common headaches for customers. Due to the long conveying pipeline, it can be very difficult to maintain.
