From the Publisher

The Pneumatic Conveying Design Guide will be of use to both designers and users of pneumatic conveying systems. Each aspect of the subject is discussed from basic principles to support those new to, or learning about, this versatile technique.

The Guide includes detailed data and information on the conveying characteristics of a number of materials embracing a wide range of properties. The data can be used to design pneumatic conveying systems for the particular materials, using logic diagrams for design procedures, and scaling parameters for the conveying line configuration. Where pneumatic conveyors already exist, the improvement of their performance is considered, based on strategies for optimizing and up-rating, and the extending of systems or adapting them for a change of material is also considered.

All aspects of the pneumatic conveying system are considered, such as the type of material used, conveying distance, system constraints including feeding and discharging, health and safety requirements, and the need for continuous or batch conveying.

* Highly practical, enabling suppliers and users to choose, design, and build suitable systems with a high degree of confidence
* Health and safety requirements taken into consideration in the safe conveying methods described in this book
* Practical application combined with background theory makes this an excellent resource for those learning about the topic

A Pipeline Runs Through It

ON Halloween afternoon, nine men arrived at a wooded ridgeline in rural Alabama. They parked their vehicles next to a gravel road, forming a loose circle of pickup trucks, a semi, and an earth-moving track hoe. A driver turned on the track hoe and drove it down into a long stretch of grass that ran along a hillside—the right of way for the Colonial Pipeline, the largest gasoline pipeline in the U.S. Beneath the ground, a 3-foot-wide steel tube carried roughly 1.4 million barrels of gasoline each day to 50 million Americans in cities up and down the Eastern Seaboard. The men were there to cond

How Not to Fight Climate Change

A pipeline in North Dakota has become a rallying cry for protesters seeking to stop new fossil fuel projects. Their goal—reducing emissions—is the right one; but their methods—opposing and sabotaging pipelines—are wrong. Maybe the pipeline, which once completed would carry oil to a shipping terminal in Illinois, needs to be rerouted to protect sources of local drinking water, or to respect the rights of a nearby Sioux Native American tribe. President Obama has suggested as much. That’s a far less drastic solution than abandoning the project outright. The main problem with the movement to blo

Protests in Italy Save Hundreds of Ancient Trees on the Chopping Block for Gas Pipeline Construction

Century-old olive groves. Photo: Alessandra Tommasi This article is based on a piece written by Rachel Hubbard for 350.org, an organisation building a global climate movement, and is republished here as part of a partnership with Global Voices. Communities in Salento, in the southern ‘heel’ of Italy, recently won a small, but important victory in their campaign against the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), which would carry gas from Azerbaijan to Italy. Planned construction would have seen the removal of ancient olive trees to make way for the pipeline, but following fierce protests, the work was
