Conditioning (Drying/Cooling)

Because of climate changes and product sensitivity in moisture and temperature, we provide convey air-conditioning options. Not all bulk material handling systems companies offer the solutions we provide.


Our sifting solutions include rotary, deck, and inline.


We have scaling solutions for major and minor/micro ingredients.


Our pneumatic conveying system offerings include vacuum, pressure, and combined systems. We evaluate our customers’ process and consider material characteristics, distance, and other factors to determine the best system design.

Dilute/Dense Phase

In addition to vacuum conveyors and pressure pneumatic conveying systems, we also utilize dilute phase (suspension flow) and dense phase (slug flow) technologies to convey materials. The specific customer process, material characteristics, distance, and other factors impact the choice of dilute vs. dense phase applications.
