This book takes a detailed look at design principles for pneumatic conveying systems and illustrates these with examples and case histories. WSL and Thames Polytechnic, where most of the experimental work for this book was carried out, both have excellent reputations for their extensive research. Their collaboration with a consortium of industrial manufacturers and users of pneumatic conveying equipment has resulted in this authoritative guide. The book is in two parts - a full and detailed reference book including case histories and their solutions and an accompanying abbreviated guide containing salient design guidelines. Data on a variety of materials will be invaluable to those designing systems to handle these materials. The guide will also prove essential to those not so familiar with pneumatic conveying, providing information on the types of systems available and their capabilities. Both parts of the set are available separately.
