Pneumatic Conveying

When pneumatically conveying materials, minimizing air turbulence is critical. Pneumatic Conveying Systems require short and long radius tube bends with smooth inner surfaces and no wrinkling to impede airflow.  Our ability to provide smooth bends, coated inner surfaces, and quickly quote and ship parts from our large parts inventory helps customers build and maintain systems in a timely fashion. 

Standard Tubing and Pipe:

  • Carbon, stainless steel, aluminum, and galvanized steel
  • 1.5” to 10” OD in 11, 12, 14, and 16 ga. wall thicknesses
  • Can supply up to 14” OD tubing
  • Pipe in 1” to 8” NPS in Schedule 5, 10, 40, and 80 wall thicknesses
  • Straight tube and pipe in 20’ lengths
  • Can provide cut-to-length tube and pipe
  • Extensive inventory of tube and pipe bends, fittings, and couplings
  • Custom bends, end forms, and fittings are available

Special Services:

  • Shot peening - Directional shot-peening produces a dimpling effect that has been found to reduce the formation of fines, fluff, and streamers within pneumatic conveying systems
  • Porcelain Coating - Porcelain enamel is a glassy compound that is adhered to the inside diameter of a tube or pipe
  • Spiral Grooving - Spiral grooving of the tube or pipe ID creates turbulence in the conveying air stream, which minimizes the frequency of impact and reduces pellet smearing
  • Ceramic Coating - Ceramic coating is composed of a proprietary matrix of high alumina ceramic beads and fillers
  • Custom interior and exterior finishes are available

We maintain over 1 million lineal feet of tubing, pipe, and bend inventory for customers who move plastics, polymers, bulk powder, and dry materials. This includes short and long radius tube and pipe bends, fittings, couplings, and accessories. H-P Pneumatic Conveying System components are compatible with all types of industrial blowers.
