Abstract

Pneumatic conveying (PC) and hydraulic conveying (HC) have significant applications in various industries. These two ways of conveying differ only by the type of the carrier fluid, one is compressible and the other is not. Even so, these two ways of conveying considered very different attracting different research groups rarely having a dialog. Therefore, one of the main objectives of our ongoing research is to compare both systems and bridge the gap to found common analysis for both PC and HC. In this paper we present a new design for an HC system using the feeding technology of PC. Thus, the particles are fed into a pure liquid stream by controlling the particle mass flow rate. A few preliminary results are presented and will act as the foundation for future analysis.
