The Gericke Pulseline PTA-PL mobile pneumatic conveying system allows the company’s dense phase pneumatic conveying technology to be rolled and connected to the discharge of a tanker, railcar, or other bulk transporter for safe, smooth, dust-free material transfer. Developed to automatically transfer powders and other bulk materials from receiving outside the plant to storage inside the plant, the mobile Pulseline PTA-PL integrates a proprietary controller, pneumatic safety valve, conveyor piping, and associated connections on a rolling platform for easy movement and setup. When connected, the self-contained system unloads the material quickly and efficiently while minimizing wear on the components. Ideal for conveying abrasive, fragile, and sensitive materials, the mobile docking station transfers the materials as a pulsed plug at low velocities to safeguard particle integrity and maintain the distribution of mixed products. The energy-efficient conveyor transfers both vertically to reach silo hatches and horizontally up to 500 meters or greater using pulsed secondary air injections along the pipe. The mobile conveyor is delivered fully assembled and ready to operate. The system may be tested at the company’s New Jersey test laboratory.
