One area which normally receives the least attention in the design of pneumatic conveying systems is that of the gas-solids separation system. Yet in many trouble-shooting exercises, inadequate design in this area is often found to be the cause of unreliable plant operation or total failure. The gas-solids separation unit can have a profound influence on the performance of a system and is particulary critical in negative-pressure and low-pressure pneumatic conveying systems.
