Conveyor systems always consist of numerous components. For example, in a vacuum or pressure system these generally include a suction point, conveying pipeline, collecting container, filter, and blower.
Since each individually implemented conveying solution has the potential to be unique in its functionality, Kongskilde Industries consistently offers a range of products designed to perform reliably and efficiently.
Significance of conveyor system parts
Each conveyor component performs a particular and necessary task. Certain elements need to be considered when it comes to determining the right components for a successful pneumatic conveying system design. These include, but are not limited to, material bulk density, conveying distance, convey rate and batch conveying, material characteristics, material container and pickup point, process equipment, facility constraints and industry environment.
In order to construct a reliable conveyor solution having proper awareness of the different types of conveyor components, their advantages and disadvantages, is essential. System life can be extended with appropriate component application as well, meaning that the conveying, dedusting, or separation system is easier to maintain in the long run.

Complementary and cohesive components in conveyor products
Each component must be reliable and should complement the other system components; straying from this principle will affect the functionality of the product conveyor, i.e. a cyclone or separator must be able to handle the airflow generated by the blower. Besides recognised physical relationships (such as between pressure, velocity and airflow) there are certain general considerations which direct industry know-how and help determine what layouts and components are best suited for a particular situation.
As noted, finding the right system can be contingent on the characteristics of the material that is to be conveyed. Material classification includes considering fluidity, particle specifics (such as size and density), bulk density, and abrasion factor. While one granulator or cutter will shred thick cardboard, another may be better suited for plastic waste.
Selecting or customising equipment is not always concentrated on the material. The facility structure may necessitate certain equipment usage over alternatives. Air conveyor systems, with positive or negative pressure, generally need less headroom than other conveyor products. If there are severe height restrictions, certain conveyor system components may be placed outside- such as an industrial blower. Nonetheless, each piping system will host some level of customization in terms of routing to reach its destination at the correct elevation.
Each conveyor component from Kongskilde Industries is designed with maximum functionality, quality and durability in mind. The products are divided into easy-to-find categories that you can navigate freely, such as filtration or conveying lines (pipes). The more we know about a customer’s needs, the better able we are to supply the conveyor products that meet them.
