In the 70ies, the dense phase convey systems, basing on the technical experience made abroad, were developed in Italy also. The target was that of handling bulk materials in effective, efficient and gentle way, reducing at the same time the engineering and installation costs.
The dense phase pneumatic system of the “AIR” family has been engineered from these assumptions. It is powered by shop distribution compressed air line and conveys in plugs or waves both granules and powders (even non free flowing ones). The convey distance can range up to few hundred meters while delivery rates can range from 100 up to 50,000 kg/h.
Hundreds of applications, over the last ten years, developed in various fields, have consecrated the system as the undisputed leader in the sector. For this reason the model range has been gradually expanded to meet the specific needs, both in terms of delivery rates and of solutions.
Three different families have been developed: AIRPULS for granules, AIRPOWDER dedicated to handling of partially and non free-flowing powders, AIRMIX dedicated to static mixing and conveying from the end of production line to the bag filling or silos systems.
Sacchi is able to design even the most challenging systems with AIRDESIGN, proprietary software for the engineering of “AIR” dense phase conveyor system.
